About this deal

The family's struggle to reconcile the son and brother they knew with the monstrous actions he committed is movingly depicted. He provides a unique perspective on the events that unfolded and offers a heartfelt exploration of the complexities of family, mental illness, and the devastating impact of Jeffrey's actions.

I cannot imagine what it took to examine all of his own inner demons, to analyze them and dissect them, in the hopes of being able to understand the horrifying actions of his son. But even when I thought of him as a man, a prisoner, a murderer, it seemed to me that my son was very far away from me. Two talk shows (Geraldo and Donahue) both hosted a disguised man "Mike" who started horrible and false rumours about the family. Used books have different signs of use and might not include supplemental materials such as CDs, Dvds, Access Codes, charts or any other extra material. It's highly addictive to get core insights on personally relevant topics without repetition or triviality.When I think back on the interview I gave to Inside Edition so many months ago, I hear the interviewer's question once again: “Do you forgive your son? He sends his troubled son to her and then when she's in her 80s he leaves her to live on her own in another state.

Okay -- I make no apologies for reading a lot of "true crime," but let me just say that this particular book stands out from the crowd. To ensure all information is accurate and of value to you, we’ve designed a production system and a content review process that keeps this content close to the source and as factual as possible. At the very thought of murder, my mind closed down or shifted to the side, a maneuver that I would be using for months to come. I feel guilty, I feel paranoid, I apologize on behalf of all humans to…I don’t know to whom…to all humans.It is both a touching family memoir and a haunting confession - the searing account of a man who never relented in his effort to fathom the deepest quarters of his son's affliction, even as they pointed to his own. This is the kind of twist which really gets ones moral examination gears spinning, and indeed spinning futilely in circles quite often. And to a lesser extent, we are get a sense of the victims and their families, but very rarely do we ever hear from the family members of the killers and what they must go through as they are often turned into pariahs for what their children/siblings did. About the book:On July 23, 1991, Milwaukee chemist Lionel Dahmer discovered - along with the rest of the world - that his son Jeffrey was a murderer who, over a period of many years, had carried out some of the most ghastly crimes ever committed in the United States. Jeffery Dahmer developed a drinking problem in high school, but his father seems oblivious to this and many other things.

This book presents a rare opportunity to see an evil man, whom most of us dismiss as an abomination, through the eyes of a loving parent.

A side to the story we rarely get to hear when the infamy of someone's crimes overshadows who they were and the people that loved them. I wanted to take him back to that early boyhood time, to freeze him there, so that he could never reach beyond the innocence and harmlessness of his childhood, never reach any of the people whose lives he had destroyed . Great read, more so because I really enjoy reading another persons point of view of the trauma that is realising someone you’ve lived their whole life, is a serial killer.

A Father's Story by Lionel Dahmer is a gripping account of a man's struggle to make sense of his son's heinous crimes. The overuse of the word “analytical” did my head in in the early chapters- almost enough for me to give up and DNF. He stared wonderingly as a beaker of phenolphthalein turned dark pink when I introduced ammonia into the solution.

Mentally ill mother, no job or income of her own) BUT, Lionel had the job, money, and means to leave the marriage. J'avais vu la série quand c'est sortie (je l'ai même écouté 2 ou 3 fois) et ce livre nous permet de suivre mais avec une autre vision que celle de Jeffrey, celle de son père.
