A Look at Private Tragedy in the Public EyeBook - 2015
Imagine losing a loved one in the public eye: a media frenzy spreads your family name through the news, reporters ambush you, and strangers gossip about your personal loss. No one understands better than Kim Goldman the complex emotions of individuals suffering a personal tragedy under the relentless gaze of the media. During the famed O.J. Simpson trial, Kim, whose brother, Ron Goldman, was brutally murdered, became the poster child for victims suffering in the public eye. In Media Circus, Goldman, now a dedicated victims' advocate, presents the first collective look at these ordinary, grieving victims--forced to manage their very private trauma and despair in a very public way. Through candid interviews and detailed, original reporting, Media Circus delivers humanizing and inspiring stories from the victims and survivors of violent crimes who found themselves the focus of national media attention. Its heartfelt narratives showcase the unique challenges of coping with and healing from grief when the whole world is watching.--Adapted from book jacket.
