Overview

The persona of Charles Manson and his bizarre sway over the Family remains riveting a quarter century down the line. Manson is a gripping account of one of the most chilling and fascinating crime sagas of our time, now available in a revised and updated edition containing 36 pages of previously unpublished photographs. New vectors into the kaleidoscopic tale that spins inexorably out of the slayings emerge in this updated edition with new material on killer Bobby Beusoleil and his occult alliance with experimental filmmaker Kenneth Anger.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"John Gilmore approaches Manson in an unique manner; not as the horror stricken outsider from the straight world, but as the jaded son of a former LAPD officer and a former starlet mother. Another thing that makes this book so different from many of the other Manson tomes is the abundance of quotes and conversations contained within its pages. Where Nuel Emmons claimed his book was Manson In His Own Words, Gilmore holds the legitimate claim to that title because a large portion of the book is written in Manson's voice. For this updated edition, Gilmore had in-depth conversations with Bobby Beausoleil and various other family members. For the first time in print, Beausoleil gets to tell his story, from his youth in El Monte through his crimes and his stay in prison. Beausoleil has lived a life that is as intriguing as Manson's and it is refreshing to see a new curve put on the story of the family. The bulk of this book is written in the voices of family members and that's what makes it interesting reading and not just another quickie Manson book out to make a buck." ~ Maximum Rock 'n' Roll
