Under The Bridge: Rebecca Godfrey with Mary Gaitskill (PRINCE STREET)

As she follows the investigation and trials, Godfrey reveals the startling truth about the unlikely killers. Laced with lyricism and insight, Under the Bridge is an unforgettable look at a haunting modern tragedy.

She teaches writing at Columbia University, and lives with her family in upstate New York.
