Riassunto: Ciudad Juarez lies just across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas. A once-thriving border town, it now resembles a failed state. Infamously known as the place where women disappear, its murder rate exceeds that of Baghdad. Last year 1,607 people were killed -- a number that is on pace to increase in 2009.

In Murder City, Charles Bowden -- one of the few journalists who has spent extended periods of time in Juarez -- has written an extraordinary account of what happens when a city disintegrates. Interweaving stories of its inhabitants -- a raped beauty queen, a repentant hitman, a journalist fleeing for his life -- with a broader meditation on the town's descent into anarchy, Bowden reveals how Juarez s culture of violence will not only worsen, but inevitably spread north.

Heartbreaking, disturbing, and unforgettable, Murder City establishes Bowden as one of our leading writers working at the height of his powers.

L'autore: Charles Bowden is the author of 22 books, notably including, Down By The River and Blood Orchid. A contributing editor of GQ and Mother Jones magazine, he also writes for publications including Harper's magazine, New York Times Book Review, Esquire and Aperture. He was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and is a winner of the Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction and the Sidney Hillman Foundation Award.
