This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is My Friend Dahmer, by Derf Backderf. Published in 2012, the book is Derf’s accounting of his experiences in junior high and high school as a friend of Jeffery Dahmer, the notorious serial murderer who was arrested in 1991, and later murdered in prison by another inmate.

The book was nominated for several awards, including the Harvey and Rueben, and received an Angoulême Award.

In our recommendation section our hosts nominated The Fuse, Kill Shakespeare, Bodies, and Enigma for discussion on our next episode, and our selected title is Kill Shakespeare.

Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti, Kayleigh Fleeman, Kit DeForge, and Cade Reynolds.
