Description

Remembering Satan seems likely to be considered the most powerful and disturbing true crime narrative to appear since Truman Capote s In Cold Blood. But what was the crime? Certainly it was not satanic abuse, says Wright, although a man sits in jail for confessing to just that. A few year ago in Olympia, Washington, two sisters, 18 and 20, began to talk, separately, about gross sexual abuse each said she had experienced as a child and had only recently begun to remember. Charges were filed against the girls father, Paul Ingram, who seemed dazed and confused, but who denied them. Time This is a cautionary tale of immense value told with rare intelligence, restraint and compassion. Remembering Satan catapults Wright to the front rank of American journalists. Newsweek The story itself is almost unutterably weird and would be fascinating no matter how it was told but in the thoroughness of his reporting, and in his thoughtful treatment of the many issues the story touches, Wright has painted a perfect miniature of our time.an edge of your seat tale that builds right up to the climactic trial. The Boston Globe Wright has taken a sensationalist story, the sort of story embraced by supermarket tabloids, and turned it into a thoughtful and gripping book. New York Timesshow more
