A Book, A Library, A Murder


Rumpus contributor Craig Fehrman has an article running over at The Hartford Advocate about the controversy surrounding Brain McDonald’s In The Middle of the Night. McDonald’s book is a true crime novel about a terrible murder that occurred in the town of Cheshire, Connecticut.

Apparently, the town librarian ordered the book for the library, and that didn’t bode well with a large portion of the townies. Fehrman writes an in-depth account of the diverse and conflicting opinions – delving into the political, constitutional, societal, and more.
