The Fact of a Body 
by Alexandra Marzano-Lesnevich

Merrick Library made this compelling memoir an instant Staff Pick.

 A National Endowment for the Arts fellow documents the story of how a summer job at a Louisiana law firm and the case of a convicted murderer and child molester changed her views about the death penalty and forced her to confront traumatic secrets in her own family.

Here's what the critics say:

“A True Crime Masterpiece” – Vogue 
Entertainment Weekly "Must" List and Best Books of the Year So Far
Real Simple's Best New Books
"The Fact of a Body is one of the best books I've read this year. It's just astounding."
― Paula Hawkins, author of Into the Water and The Girl on the Train

"This book is a marvel. The Fact of a Body is equal parts gripping and haunting and will leave you questioning whether any one story can hold the full truth." ― Celeste Ng, author of the New York Times bestselling Everything I Never Told You and Little Fires Everywhere
