Product description

The New York Times bestselling, authoritative account of the life of Charles Manson, filled with surprising new information and previously unpublished photographs: “A riveting, almost Dickensian narrative…four stars” (People).

More than forty years ago Charles Manson and his mostly female commune killed nine people, among them the pregnant actress Sharon Tate. It was the culmination of a criminal career that author Jeff Guinn traces back to Manson’s childhood. Guinn interviewed Manson’s sister and cousin, neither of whom had ever previously cooperated with an author. Childhood friends, cellmates, and even some members of the Manson family have provided new information about Manson’s life. Guinn has made discoveries about the night of the Tate murders, answering unresolved questions, such as why one person near the scene of the crime was spared.

Manson puts the killer in the context of the turbulent late sixties, an era of race riots and street protests when authority in all its forms was under siege. Guinn shows us how Manson created and refined his message to fit the times, persuading confused young women (and a few men) that he had the solutions to their problems. At the same time he used them to pursue his long-standing musical ambitions. His frustrated ambitions, combined with his bizarre race-war obsession, would have lethal consequences.

Guinn’s book is a “tour de force of a biography…Manson stands as a definitive work: important for students of criminology, human behavior, popular culture, music, psychopathology, and sociopathology…and compulsively readable” (Ann Rule, The New York Times Book Review).

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, August 2013: For more than 40 years, Charles Manson has cast an awful shadow over the Age of Aquarius: an unrepentant murderer synonymous with psychopath in the American lexicon, impossible to ignore or forget. Accordingly, there’s no measuring the volume of ink and celluloid committed to the man, his “family,” and their deeds. So what’s left to be said about Charles Manson? Quite a bit, it turns out. With Manson, Jeff Guinn delves deep into Manson’s “origin story” to reconstruct the wicked combination of events and circumstance that helped make the monster. In prose that’s both economical and compelling--almost hard-boiled--Guinn recounts a troubled upbringing of neglectful, criminal parents and juvenile delinquency, compelling the narrative into the increasingly bizarre landscapes of late-1960s Southern California--a context that turned out to be the perfect accelerant to Manson’s narcissistic delusions. By the time of Helter Skelter and the infamous Manson Family killings, Guinn has aligned the tumblers of Manson’s story and opened a vault of secrets regarding one of the most violent and strange episodes of modern American history. --Jon Foro

Meet David Burkhart, the Latest Actor to Play Charles Manson - People Magazine

For an actor, some roles are harder than others. It's one thing to be a leading man in a romantic comedy. It's another thing entirely to play Charles Manson, one of the most notorious killers in American history. Just one day after Manson family member Leslie van Houten was denied parole , the Reelz Channel is tackling the famous case on the second season of the docuseries Murder Made Me Famous. Actor David Burkhart was cast as Manson – and tells PEOPLE that the role was both challenging and dark. "Before I started filming, I watched videos of Charles Manson over and over and over," Burkhart, 36, tells PEOPLE. I worked very hard at trying to get he nuances of his voice and his mannerisms. Burkhart says that the role was more difficult because the iconic Manson story is a work of non-fiction. "The director, Brad Osborne, reminded us that these were real people, and that we ended to have respect for the victims," he says. Just thinking about what these people went through was awful, and we were actors portraying a role. Manson, 81, remains incarcerated. He is serving 9 concurrent life sentences at Corcoran State Prison in Corcoran, California. Burkhart – who usually gets cast in Biblical roles like Jesus Christ – says he was happy when the "intense" shoot was over. "It took me a while to come down from it. When I was done filming Murder Made Me Famous , I didn't want to ever think about Charles Manson again.
