BKBF: Unravelling the Past

Though what emerges are two very different reads, both authors share an investigative, almost true-crime approach to their overlapping subjects: where Nick Flynn (This Is the Night Our House Will Catch Fire) goes on a personal detective hunt into the mysterious events of his family’s traumatic past and his mother’s profound struggles during his childhood, Susannah Cahalan (The Great Pretender) puts forth her own journalistic detective story around mental health and one of the most shocking chapters in the history of modern psychiatry. Moderated by New York Times book critic, Jennifer Szalai
