Dean Jobb, The Case of the Murderous Dr. Cream: The Hunt for a Victorian Era Serial Killer (2021)
For August’s Summer Book Club choice, Professor Stephen Kimber has selected The Case of the Murderous Dr. Cream: The Hunt for a Victorian Era Serial Killer, the new work of historical nonfiction written by Kimber’s fellow faculty in the School of Journalism, Professor Dean Jobb.
Asked why he chose this book, Kimber says, “The easy answer is that this is the latest work of historical nonfiction by my colleague, Dean Jobb, a faculty member in our MFA in Creative Nonfiction Program. If you need more, consider these endorsements: ‘a tour de force of storytelling… one of the best books I’ve read this year’ (Louise Penny, author of the Inspector Gamache novels); ‘a fine piece of social history… it engrossed me right up to its deeply satisfying conclusion’ (Charlotte Gray, bestselling Canadian nonfiction writer) …”
