Burn, Gordon, 1948-2009, author

It seemed the case of the notorious Yorkshire Ripper was finally closed when Peter Sutcliffe was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1981. But in the early 1980s Gordon Burn spent three years living in Sutcliffe's home town of Bingley, researching his life. A modern classic, 'Somebody's Husband, Somebody's Son' offers one of the most penetrating and provocative insights into the mind of a murderer ever written
