About this deal

But I wasn't told what these other mothers and fathers were told, that their sons were dead at the hands of a murderer.

It's heartbreaking and of course covers all the obvious and familiar terrain of how gut-wrenchingly awful Dahmer's crimes were, but with an added twist (i.This is one of the most underrated and rarest books, it took me forever and great effort to find it but it was well worth it. I find it abominable that people can be so hateful to parents of murderers, especially parents like the Dahmer's who, like so many others, do what they believe is a good job raising their children and guiding them to be decent, law-abiding citizens. A side to the story we rarely get to hear when the infamy of someone's crimes overshadows who they were and the people that loved them. Overall Thoughts: Reading a memoir or biography without pictures is like having a cookbook without pictures of the recipe. I don't believe that how Jeff turned out was solely because of her mental illnesses and the medication she took while pregnant with him.

All used books might have various degrees of writing, highliting and wear and tear and possibly be an ex-library with the usual stickers and stamps.She distanced herself from Jeffrey from his beginning as a baby by not nursing him, to the end of her mothering of him at age eighteen by abandoning him to live alone in their home. There were flashes of attempted sincerity, but overall I felt he wanted me to think him a hero and was manipulating the book even to the point of confessing his own arson and his high-school bombing that had not been discovered so that I would approve of him. But I applaud Lionel Dahmer for writing his memoir, charging and challenging parents to be more aware of their children's' struggles, to not let them fade to the periphery like he did, in hopes of saving a future child from the dark path his son went down.

This battle within him illustrates the extraordinary challenge of maintaining familial love in the midst of such heinous revelations. At that point, I believed that it was my son's madness that most powerfully and permanently separated us. On July 23, 1991, Milwaukee chemist Lionel Dahmer discovered - along with the rest of the world - that his son Jeffrey was a murderer who, over a period of many years, had carried out some of the most ghastly crimes ever committed in the United States.Mentally ill mother, no job or income of her own) BUT, Lionel had the job, money, and means to leave the marriage.
