Looking for Revolution, Finding Murder: The Crimes & Transformation of Katherine Ann Power (Paragon Fall 2019)
Book Description
Katherine Power’s story has all the drama of a true-crime book. This is not a true-crime book. It is a biography of a conscience. It traces an evolution from good Catholic girl, to idealistic antiwar activist, to gun-toting revolutionary, to unwitting accomplice to murder, to longtime fugitive, to voluntary but defiant prisoner, to woman transformed in the autumn of her life.

Writing is a way of arguing with ourselves, a way of keeping ourselves honest by discovering precisely what we believe
and finding out whether we are justified in believing it.

    Dr. Landman:
    I chanced across your early book, Regret, and am now embarked on it. Long ago, I did a stint (1968-80) as an ethnographer, later went back to regular work in order to make a living (as the Mainers say, It’s not living here that’s hard; it’s making a living here that’s hard.) Wanted to say a special thank you for bridging the science/humanities divide and for giving the subject its due (I always read the references first, and I can tell that you gave the subject its due). I quite believe that there could be no life without regret, else one would have to be unutterably idiotic in real terms. All best wishes, and many thanks for noting Kumin and Merwin in your text. Our Ground Time Here will indeed be brief (another cause for regret).
