"Hatemonger is a must-read for those who want to understand how small minds steeped in extremist methods have amassed great power in the 21st century. A superbly reported and haunting American tragedy.”
-Rachel Slade, author of the national bestseller Into the Raging Sea
“In her devastatingly beautiful memoir . . . she tracks her father through his lineage of mystics; his shadowy past; and his years of obsession ... and even brilliance.”
-The National Book Review
"Crux is everything I want in a memoir ... Jean Guerrero has a poet’s lyrical sense, a journalist’s dogged devotion to truth, and a fast and far-reaching mind."
-Melissa Febos, author of Whip Smart
"The genius of Guerrero’s exquisite creation lies beyond her lyrical descriptions, and visceral phrases ... What truly makes this book extraordinary is the careful layering and connections ... the kind of memoir that seems to redefine the genre."
