Description

The listing, Lizzie Borden by Daylight, A Private Disgrace has ended.

1967 hardcover.
Good condition, some dj wear.
Victoria Lincoln puts her indelible stamp on this highly entertaining version of the famous murders. She makes you believe she was actually there, and she was, in Fall River, at least, and furthermore she actually knew Lizzie Borden. When Victoria was a child, she occasionally talked with Lizzie who was by then an old lady feeding the birds in her back yard down the street. You get a kind of horse's mouth impression, a New England insider's coveted fly on the wall view. Lincoln is deliciously gossipy, and as a fellow Fall Riverite as well as a woman, Lincoln thinks she has Lizzie pegged.

Whether or not you believe Lizzie was guilty may color your opinion of this book; but if you think Lizzie was too feminine, too small in stature and thus in strength to hack two people to death this book may change your mind. If it doesn't, nothing will. Ms. Lincoln thinks Lizzie is guilty as hell and she sets out in her entertaining way to prove it.

Nevertheless, her book is a masterpiece of research and sheer writing skill. Lizzie is extremely scary and like the maid Bridget after the murders, you wouldn't have wanted to stay in the same house with her. This is a level headed cold blooded killer and you'll meet her face to face in this book- and shudder.
