By Mel Heimer. I can respect the subtitle just putting it all on Front Street, but then the SUB-subtitle...y'all, we get it. Not that there's any way to downplay Albert Fish.
The Cannibal bills itself on the back cover as "a classic of true crime," and I do recall this slim volume and its breathless accounting of Fish's monstrous acts being a sought-after secret read back in the day. If you recall it the same way, now's your chance to see why the librarian wouldn't let you check it out. The paperback is in good condition for its age, some edgewear, toned pages but an uncracked and firm spine. This copy seems to have gotten printed "off plumb" but it's still perfectly readable.
