Product Details

Praise

“A poignant, insightful, and admirably honest chronicle of a father’s attempts to make sense—in both large and small ways—of his son’s murder.”—New York Times

“Powerful … must-reading for everyone troubled by the epidemic of shootings.”—Time

“Gibson is a fine writer whose work rivals the subtleties of Norman Mailer’s best fiction.”—Boston magazine

“Complex, surprising. … This book should be seriously considered by educational professionals, as well as by violence survivors who might benefit from Gibson’s singular odyssey.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Gibson is one of those rare birds whose humanism is a result of his innate curiosity about people. He’s not interested in demonizing anyone, and he readily admits how people confound his expectations. To his great credit, Gibson writes about everyone he meets as an irreducibly complex human being.”—Salon

“Gone Boy is not merely a book; it’s a journey you experience. You move with Gregory Gibson as he looks down the barrel of the gun that killed his son, stands face to face with the man who sold it, comes to know the killer, comes to know the killer’s parents—and comes to know himself. You will never read a more honest book, and honestly, it changed me.”—Gavin de Becker, author of The Gift of Fear
