My Friend Dahmer
This is a book about serial killer, rapist, and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer - before all that.
Told from the perspective of cartoonist and Dahmer classmate Derf Backderf, we see snippets of Dahmer's childhood and adolescence.
I don't remember the last time a book made me physically sick, but this one did.
I'm not sure what to say. It's well written, drawn and researched. But it's horrifying in a really sick way. Still, it's one man's truth of his friendship that petered and then the aftermath when not so many years later he finds out what Dahmer did. Maybe what's so terrifying is how unlikely it seemed. And also, how unsurprising.
