Patty Hearst & The Twinkie Murders: A Tale of Two Trials

by Paul Krassner Author

Patty Hearst & The Twinkie Murders is a darkly satiric look at two of the most famous cases of our era: the kidnapping of heiress Patty Hearst, and the shocking assassinations of San Francisco mayor George Moscone and gay political leader Harvey Milk. As a reporter for the Berkeley Barb, Paul Krassner was ringside at the spectacular California trials, and in his book Krassner's deadpan, hilarious style utterly captures the nightmare reality behind the absurdities of the courtroom circus.

Using his infamous satiric pen and investigative chops, Krassner digs into the truth behind the events: the role of the police and FBI, the real deal with Patty and the S.L.A., and what really happened in Patty’s infamous closet.
