Overview
"Patty Hearst & The Twinkie Murders" is darkly satiric take on two of the most famous cases of our era: the kidnapping of heiress Patty Hearst and the shocking assassination of San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and gay leader Harvey Milk. As a reporter for the "Berkeley Barb," Paul Krassner was ringside at the spectacular California trials, and his hilarious deadpan style captures the nightmare reality behind the absurdities of the courtroom circus. Using his infamous satiric pen and investigative chops, Krassner gets to the truth behind the events: the role of the police and FBI, the real deal with Patty and the SLA, and what really happened in Patty's infamous closet. Also included is a merciless expose of the "Taliban" wing of the Gay Movement and their scandalous attacks on alt-rock star Michelle Shocked. The Outspoken Interview features an irreverent and fascinating romp through the secret history of America's radical underground--names will be named.
