Maggie Nelson's memoir about the murder of her aunt Jane is compelling honest and beautifully written Nelson narrates the experience of her family through the trial of Jane's murderer 36 years after the crime occurred The Red Parts is than just a narrative of this trial though Nelson intersperses this experience with slices of everyday life in doing so effectively showing what it means to grow up in the shadow of such a tragedy; the extensive ripples of violent crime Although an intensely personal reflective story this memoir also explores 'murder mind' and the culture of fascination around dead girls At times confronting almost exclusively sad The Red Parts is an excellent memoir nonetheless
