Buddy Beaverhausen Book Nook: The Life and Times of Squeaky Fromme
The daughter of s middle-class family, she had a workaholic father whom the author, Jess Bravin, describes as emotionally abusive. In search of a father figure, she found the charismatic but demonic Charles Manson.
On parole in 1976, our li'l Squeaky wasted no time in getting herself a gun and trying to assassinate President Gerald Ford. (And you say we don't need gun control in America?)
Bravin's bio is a fascinating read that would make a great movie. I say Emma Watson or, better yet, Rachel Wood could assay the role quite nicely.
A powerful book and a fascinating read. Try it.
