Want to know why you love true crime or unicorn Frappuccinos? This author can explain

That line of thinking works for potato chips. How might that work for expanding your cultural point of view?

Just as you have those fundamental flavours in food to help you curate what you’re eating, you can do the same thing for what you’re consuming culturally. I did all sorts of research for the book and found you can divide cultural genres fairly cleanly into five categories that roughly correspond with sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami.

So often, we consider taste in terms of good or bad. Why is it useful to think beyond those points of view?

Good taste or bad taste doesn’t make sense anymore. Those were the rules that made sense when there was one cultural arbiter of taste, when everyone was reading Life magazine in the 1950s and it told you what was good or bad. That’s obviously not the world that we live in anymore. It has

‘Black Dahlia, Red Rose’ Author Piu Eatwell Sheds New Light On A 70-Year-Old Murder Mystery

“I’m particularly interested in cases where it’s not just a murder or a crime, but there’s a whole kind of mythological significance — you know, the murder or the crime suddenly became much bigger in a way than the actual event, and came to represent something,” Piu Eatwell, author of Black Dahlia, Red Rose: The Crime, Corruption, and Cover-Up of America’s Greatest Unsovled Murder, a new book that claims to have solved the famed 1947 case, tells me over the phone on the October morning of the book’s United States release.

Like any true crime obsessive, I know about The Black Dahlia — or at least I thought I did. The unsolved murder of 22-year-old Elizabeth Short in Los Angeles has been a subject of fascination for 70 years. Black Dahlia, Red Rose looks at the story with fresh eyes, going back to

‘Lady Killers’: Chicago Author Explores Lives of Female Serial Murderers

Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History takes a look at 14 women who didn’t stop at one murder, or two, or three … Fourteen serial killers throughout history.

Chicago’s own Tori Telfer looks at their origins and motivation, their rationale. Perhaps even more important, she looks at how they were seen. How does society view women who are cold-blooded killers? Differently than men. Let’s start there. We caught up with Telfer with just a few questions in anticipation for her book launch at Women and Children First, Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.

JB: “I believe we have to laugh and shudder in order to understand our own human history, which is partially an inheritance of death. Recoiling from crime

Author with local roots returns with new book, "Christian Bend"

KINGSPORT — Award-winning author Karen Spears Zacharias will be in Kingsport on Sept. 24 and 25 where she will be a guest speaker at the dedication of the Gold Star Monument and sign copies of her new book, “CHRISTIAN BEND”, which features a main character with PTSD and focuses on how the community helps him to heal.

Zacharias currently lives in Oregon but has family members in Hawkins County.

As a Gold Star daughter who lost her soldier father in 1966 in the war in Vietnam, Zacharias is very involved with many such efforts on a national level, and her book, “After the Flag has Been Folded”, also speaks directly to the difficulties faced by many military families who have lost loved ones.

Copies of “CHRISTIAN BEND” will be available following the dedication on Monday, Sept. 25, and she will also be signing books on Sunday afternoon, Sept. 24, at I Love Books
