Using a strange and unprecedented lawsuit as her larger-than-life example -- the lawsuit of Jeffrey MacDonald, a convicted murderer, against Joe McGinniss, the author of Fatal Vision, a book 4/5(4).

Joe McGinniss wrote a book about Jeffrey MacDonald that indicated he was a murderer. Janet Malcolm wrote a book critical of Joe McGinniss, stating that his journalism was an egregious betrayal. The journalist is Joe McGinniss. The murderer is Jeffrey MacDonald, subject of McGinniss' best-selling Fatal Vision, The relationship between the two is the paradigm for Malcolm's stinging indictment of all journalists' relationships to their subjects—an indictment that created a furor when published last year in the New Yorker, and which is here reprinted in full, with a new, slippery Author: Janet Malcolm.
