Comedian and actor Patton Oswalt shares the posthumous true-crime masterpiece written by his wife Michelle McNamara, who died suddenly at the age of 46 in 2016. McNamara, a reporter and the creator of TrueCrimeDiary.com, spent years tracking the serial killer she dubbed the Golden State Killer, who, between 1976 and 1986, committed 50 sexual assaults and 10 murders up and down California. Oswalt wrote, “I can’t help feeling that somewhere, in her final pages, she left enough clues for someone to finish the job she couldn’t—to put California’s worst serial killer behind bars.”
Also included in this episode is a behind-the-scenes tour of items from the Library’s collections. Acting Charles J. Liebman Curator of Manuscripts, Thomas Lannon, hand-picked selections especially for Oswalt, including the Patricia Cornwell collection of Jack the Ripper files, first editions of Philip K. Dick novels, and an album of photographs taken in 1866, of men incarcerated in Dublin’s Mountjoy Prison, that are considered among the earliest known examples of the mugshot.
