Homicide blog to book

Jill Leovy is turning her year as the Los Angeles Times' homicide blogger into a book for Spiegel & Grau. "The Homicide Report: Black Men, Murder and America’s Unseen Catastrophe" will weave together “a kaleidoscopic narrative about a murder-wracked community in South Los Angeles with a new theory about race and America’s homicide epidemic,” says Publishers Lunch via California Authors.
