So Far Gone

A novel by

A haunting, disturbing book about the life of a man on Massachusetts' death row

Jack Connor is on death row for murdering his father, mother, and grandmother, and he is scheduled to be the first person executed in Massachusetts in fifty years. So Far Gone is the Connors' story as told by Jack, augmented by testimony from various witnesses. Paul Cody leads us into the claustrophobic Boston suburb where Jack grew up, inside his family home on Clifton Street, and deep into the tormented mind of a lost man. Here is a brilliant and moving novel, a profound, powerful book about family, childhood, and memory.


Praise for this book

"So Far Gone is like meeting a murderer in person without the false comfort of guards and riot guns and wire-reinforced security glass between you and the killer. It's that dangerous and exciting." - Pinckney Benedict
