            A fiercely personal memoir about Miller's coming of age in the male-dominated literary world of the nineties, becoming, at twenty-five, the first female literary editor of Esquire, and her personal and working relationship with David Foster Wallace Adrienne Miller was a naive twe...nty-two-year-old from the Midwest when she got a lucky break and was hired as an editorial assistant at GQ. The mid-nineties was still the golden age of print journalism, and a publication like GQ then seemed the red-hot center of the literary world, even if its sensibilities were manifestly mid-century--the martinis, the male egos, and the unquestioned authority of kings. Still, Miller learned to hold her own in a man's world, and three years later, she forged her own path, becoming the first woman to hold the role of literary editor of Esquire. She was at Esquire during a unique moment in history that simultaneously saw the last days of the old guard of literary titans and the rise of a new movement, as exemplified by McSweeney's and by David Foster Wallace. Through Miller's work as his editor at the magazine, Wallace would become her closest friend, confidant--and antagonist. Here is the untold story of an intellectual and artistic exchange that grew into a highly charged relationship between a young woman finding her voice and one of the most prominent writers of the era. This is a candid portrait of the mercurial man behind the spotlight, and an account of the shrouded literary world, which asks the question: How does a young woman fit into this culture and at what cost? With wit and deep intelligence, Miller presents a moving portrayal of a young woman's education in a land of men.

            A chilling true story--part memoir, part crime investigation--reminiscent of Ann Rule's classic The Stranger Beside Me, about a little girl longing for love and how she found friendship with her charismatic babysitter--who was also a vicious serial killer. Growing up on Cape Cod ...in the 1960s, Liza Rodman was a lonely little girl. During the summers, while her mother worked days in a local motel and danced most nights in the Provincetown bars, her babysitter--the kind, handsome handyman at the motel where her mother worked--took her and her sister on adventures in his truck. He bought them popsicles and together, they visited his secret garden in the Truro woods. To Liza, he was one of the few kind and understanding adults in her life. Everyone thought he was just a great guy. But there was one thing she didn't know; their babysitter was a serial killer. Some of his victims were buried--in pieces--right there, in his garden in the woods. Though Tony Costa's gruesome case made screaming headlines in 1969 and beyond, Liza never made the connection between her friendly babysitter and the infamous killer of numerous women, including four in Massachusetts, until decades later. Haunted by nightmares and horrified by what she learned, Liza became obsessed with the case. Now, she and cowriter Jennifer Jordan reveal the chilling and unforgettable true story of a charming but brutal psychopath through the eyes of a young girl who once called him her friend.
