Goodreads Giveaway: Iphigenia in Forest Hills
Acclaimed journalist Janet Malcolm’s new book, Iphigenia in Forest Hills: Anatomy of a Murder Trial, is about to publish later this month. Malcolm’s brilliant,compulsively readable coverage of the sensational murder trial of Mazoltuv Borukhova, a beautiful doctor from the Bucharin-Jewish community in Forest Hills, who allegedly hired a hit man to kill her husband, dominated an issue of The New Yorker. Yet her new book contains significant never before published material — interviews with the victim’s father and brothers, with defense and prosecution attorneys, even a visit to Rikers Island. And the trial is very much back in the news with an appeal argued by Alan Dershowitz.
