In the summer of 1977, Terri Jentz and her Yale roommate took a
cross-country bike trip. As they lay sleeping in the central Oregon
desert, a man in a pickup truck deliberately ran over their tent
and proceeded to attack them with an axe. The horrific crime was
reported in newspapers across the country, but no one was ever
arrested. Fifteen years later, Jentz returns to the small town
where she was nearly murdered and makes an extraordinary discovery:
the violence of that night is as present for the community as it is
for her. Shockingly, many say they know who did it, and he is
living freely in their midst.
Powerful, eloquent, and paced like the most riveting of thrillers,
Strange "Piece of Paradise" is a startling profile of a psychopath,
a sweeping reflection on violence and the myth of American
individualism, and a moving record of Jentz's brave inner journey
from violence to hope.
