A perceptively sensitive and ingenious work, Violent Cases, reveals the often murky nexus between memory and imagination through the narrator's cloudy childhood remembrance of a visit to Al Capone's osteopath and the impact of seedy stories on impressionable youth. McKean has created a stunning new cover in honor of the book's 10th anniversary.
