“A meticulous, investigative account of the so-called Goodbar killing.” —Los AngelesTimes
“Told crisply and very, very graphically . . . Lacey Fosburgh writes with compassion of these sick and shattered lives.” —The New York Times Book Review

In 1973 teacher Roseann Quinn was brutally murdered by a man she had picked up only a few hours before in a bar - drifter, hustler and petty criminal John Wayne Wilson.
For so many at the time, Quinn became the poster child for the dark side of the sexual revolution. The press had a field day raking Quinn over the coals for her “double life” - beloved teacher by day and slutty barfly by night.
But Fosburgh never goes there - instead of the smug moralism that so many at the time took in writing about the case - we’re drawn a sensitive, tragic story of two human beings who, in so many ways, end up in the wrong place at the wrong time.
We’ll never truly know what happened that night - Wilson told multiple variations of the story and committed suicide before the case went to trial.
“Poignant” isn’t a word you’d think was possible in reviewing a true crime book - but truly that’s where “Closing Time” lands - a sad tale of two sad people and so many lives ruined.
