More About The Corpse Had a Familiar Face by Edna Buchanan
 
 
 
Overview

Now in trade paperback, Pulitzer Prize winner Edna Buchanan s classic nonfiction masterpiece detailing events from her eighteen years writing for The Miami Herald.

Nobody covered love and lunacy, life and death on Miami s mean streets better than legendary Miami Herald police reporter Edna Buchanan. Winner of a 1986 Pulitzer Prize, Edna has seen it all, including more than 5,000 corpses. Many of them had familiar faces.
Edna Buchanan doesn t write about cops she writes about people: the father who murdered his comatose toddler in her hospital crib; fifteen-year-old Charles Cobb a lethal killer; Gary Robinson, who "died hungry"; the Haitian who was knitted to death in a Hialeah factory; and the naked man who threw his girlfriend s severed head at a young cop who threw it back."
