Charlie grew up in 1960s Chicago believing his father, Matt Rizzo, as an intellectual and a poet, was blinded in a hunting accident during his youth. But that story is not quite the truth—Matt Rizzo was actually wounded in a failed robbery attempt. When he was sentenced to prison, his prison mate was Nathan Leopold Jr., from the infamous murdering duo Leopold and Loeb. A haunting mixture of biography, true crime, and poetry, drawn in a cross-hatched pen and ink style.
