“Outrage is conditioned not by the nature of the atrocity but by the affiliation of the victim and the perpetrator.”
Patrick Radden Keefe, Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland
Prize-winning New Yorker journalist and bestselling author of Empire of Pain, Patrick Radden Keefe, provides meticulously reported, hypnotically engaging profiles on the many ways people behave badly—a deeply human portrait of the complexities of crime and corruption.
Rogues brings together a dozen of Radden Keefe’s most celebrated articles from The New Yorker: exploring the intricacies of forging $150,000 vintage wines, examining whether a whistleblower who dared to expose money laundering at a Swiss bank is a hero or a fabulist, spending time in Vietnam with Anthony Bourdain, chronicling the quest to bring down a cheerful international black market arms merchant, and profiling a passionate death penalty attorney who represents the “worst of the worst,” among other bravura works of literary journalism.
Patrick Radden Keefe has garnered prizes ranging from the National Magazine Award to the Orwell Prize to the National Book Critics Circle Award for his meticulously-reported, hypnotically-engaging work on the many ways people behave badly. In addition to The New Yorker, his work has appeared in The New York Review of Books, The New York Times Magazine, Slate, and other publications.
