About the Author
Suzanne Berne is a frequent contributor to THE NEW YORK TIMES, and her fiction and essays have also appeared in a number of magazines. A CRIME IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD is her first novel. She lives with her family outside Boston.
"A remarkable first novel...that captures the history of child-parent relations for the last quarter of a century."--The New York Times Book Review
"Like Alice McDermott's That Night and in the tradition of Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird, Suzanne Berne has crafted a child's disillusionment that mirrors a greater disaffection."--Newsday
