of society and of the human soul there is beauty and hope to be found, and there are no absolutes despite how eager we might be to ascribe them In the process, she paints a perfect picture of true journalism its labor, its obsessiveness, its challenges, its toll, and also its value I can t fathom how difficult this story was to tell, nor can I measure its greater meaning now that it has been told Jeff Hobbs, author of The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace The Long Shadow of Small Ghosts takes as its subject the long shadow of an unthinkable crimesuggesting that thinking about the

is insightful and mesmerizing Texas Standard A devastating tale of true crime and the sociology of the dirt poor border town where it took place Even in the horror, there are glints of hope The Dallas Morning News Rather than focus on the gory details, Tillman instead is interested in how Brownsville itself has been wounded, and how it sets about to recover As a good reporter must, she talks to everyone from lawyers and psychiatrists who consulted on the case to local people who still regard the building as a site housing evil There is strength in her rejection of a single narrative Kate
