What pushed Noura Jackson, a privileged, eighteen year old, over the edge–from high school and parties in Memphis to a Tennessee prison, convicted of matricide, one of the rarest of all crimes?
Stranger to the Truth, a work of literary nonfiction by Lisa C. Hickman, explores the fatal intersection of Noura, her circle of dissolute teenage friends, and the murder of Jennifer Jackson, Noura’s high-achieving mother.
Set against the backdrop of an early June Bacchanalia, the brutal attack seemed to reflect deep-seated, personal and exponential rage.
The narrative exhibits more than energy … call it omniscient and urgent.
