If anyone is interested in reading a non-fiction political drama that is absolutely riveting, this is one for you. It is an incredible story.  I really enjoy reading long non-fiction essays/articles and I picked this up late night several months ago and I could not put it down to go to sleep. I finished it in one sitting in the middle of the night and I had a hard time going to sleep afterwards.

 

Here is the link: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2011/04/04/110404fa_fact_grann?currentPage=all

 

I have always thought it would be fun to read and discuss as a group. I am hoping some of you will read it :) Since I just now discovered this sub-form, I am super excited to be participating!

Yeah, an amazing and crazy story.  If it had come from Holywood, I would have said it had too many twists!

that's exactly what i was thinking. would make a GREAT hollywood movie. 

 

it was more an agatha christie type. 

 

it was crazy that this is NOT fiction. 

 

and bottom line was LOVE. all that for love. how crazy is THAT!!!!
