Read full description of the books:



This was a bargain bin pickup. A castoff at the Singapore American Club library sale ... a hardback for $3 Sing (about USD2.20). I head read OJ books .. Faye Resnick, Vincent Bugliosi, OJ's own "I Want to Tell You", Jeffrey Toobin plus Dominick Dunne articles in Vanity Fair. This space is saturated with knockoff books by lawyers, jurors, cops and peripheral players ... I figured I would read it in about 10 years when I needed to get nostalgic in my retirement. But .. this is a seriously good book. Not for its recount of the trial and polemics of evidence, Judge Ito's antics and the whole OJ phenomenon. This is a very poignant testimony by a black prosecutor in the most racially-charged trial of the last century. As the race card was played out, the biggest victim was Christoper Darden who became the target of threats and abuse from blacks, accusations of being an Uncle Tom. His recount of the subtle threats, trashtalk and ridicule dished out by defense attorneys Johnnie Cochran and Flea Bailey are especially moving. It is evident that CD and his co-counsel Marcia Clark had a some kind of fling during the trial ... CD treats this with delicacy, refusing to disclose anything related to sexual intimacy, simply stating that during the trial she became "a friend for life". Her marriage imploded during the trial and her ex husband waged a custody battle while CD had his name blasted in LA's black community. His story of their relationship and how they coped with the pressure was moving. And his portrait of OJ, the man, not the myth is devastating. This book surprised me.
