Christopher Conlon, author of poetry collections Gilbert and Garbo
in Love
, The Weeping Time, and Mary Falls and the
novel Midnight on Mourn Street turns his attention to the short,
violent lives of Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate. With a
haunting depth and sensitivity, Conlon explores the possibilities that
made human beings turn savage in the middle of America, and follows the
doomed pair on a bloodthirsty journey made all the more tragic by its
reality.


"Charles Raymond Starkweather lived a short, violent life—from his
birth in November of 1938 to his death in the electric chair in June of
1959. Along with his equally lethal young girlfriend, Caril Ann Fugate
(she was just fourteen when they met in 1957), he shot and/or stabbed
eleven victims to death in Nebraska and Wyoming. Christopher Conlon
follows up his other masterful verse portraits with this stark—no pun
intended—vision of inner torment and murder. In often savage, sometimes
lyrical, and always jolting poetic images, Conlon word-paints a dark
blood canvas which reveals the soul of one of history’s most notorious
serial killers. Charlie Starkweather lives, loves, and death-dreams once
again in these nightmare pages." -William F. Nolan
