Crime, Punishment, & A Boyhood BetweenBook - 2009
In Green Fields, Bob Cowser presents an eye-opening work of crime writing in the tradition of Capote, Didion, and Baldwin. In this chilling narrative reconstruction, Cowser examines the 1979 murder in rural Tennessee of his former classmate, Cary Ann Medlin, and the sentencing of Robert Glen Coe. Resulting in the first execution to occur in Tennessee in forty years, Coe's case became a media spectacle, as Cary's family attempted to cope with the tragedy. Covering both the family's grief and Coe's efforts to walk free, Green Fields takes no sides, reporting the events truthfully, in all their horror and complexity.
