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.
