About this Item

Hardback. Very slight shelf wear to top edge of D/J. On 30 November, 1989, electrical repairman Richard Mallory disappeared from his home in Clearwater, Florida. He had become the first of eight victims of Aileen 'Lee' Wuornos, one of the very rare examples of female serial killers. Nobody understood what drove a woman to kill again and again. This is Lee's own story, backed by previously unpublished background research from leading criminologist Christopher Berry-Dee. She was born on the wrong isde of the tracks in suburban Troy, Illinois. Wuornos's dysfunctional life was a wreck from the day she was born until the day she met her own premature and agonising demise at the hands of Florida's state executioner. The subject of three motion pictures, countless TV documentatires, books and newspaper features, her status has been elevated to that of a murderous gult figure since her death. The story of the women dubbed the 'Damsel of Death', Monster is a minute examintion of the inner workings of this female serial killer's mind and a chilling, yet revealing insight into the mind of a female psychopath from cradle to grave. Illustrated. 238 pp. We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions etc.) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

About this title

Synopsis:

Told in her own words, this is the story of serial killer Aileen Wuornos, who was portrayed in an Oscar-winning performance by Charlize Theron in the film Monster. There have been few female serial killers, but Aileen Wuornos, who was executed in 2002, was a remarkable example of this rare breed of death row inmate. All too often, female prostitutes have been the victims of male serial killers Wuornos’ killings were the inverse of this pattern. After escaping an abusive childhood at the hands of her grandparents, she became a child prostitute, progressing into a disastrous adulthood of prostitution and damaging affairs with both men and women. Her eventual metamorphosis from victim to attacker had brutal consequences a stream of dead men. This is her story, as told to Christopher Berry-Dee, editor of The New Criminologist and director of Britain’s Criminology Research Center.

From the Publisher:

"I'm a good person inside, but when I get drunk, I just don't know. It's just... when I get drunk, don't mess the fuck with me..." There have been few female serial killers but Aileen "Lee" Wuornos was an incredible example of this rare species of death-row inhabitants. All-too-often female prostitutes have been the victims of male serial killers--the killings of Wuornos were the inverse of this. She was a child prostitute after running away from an abusive childhood in the hands of her grandparents straight into a disastrous adulthood of difficult affairs with both men and women and prostitution. Her metamorphosis from victim to attacker had brutal consequences: a stream of dead men. Following a renewed interest in this woman after the film Monster this is her story in her own words.
