Chambersburg, PA -- Sunbury Press has released American Berserk: A Cub Reporter, a Small-Town Daily, the Schizo ‘70s, Bill Morris's compilation of odd-ball stories from his days as a reporter in Chamberburg. About the Book: After publishing his third novel, Motor City Burning (Pegasus Books, 2014), Bill Morris turned his attention to researching, remembering and reliving some of the spectacularly lurid stories he covered in Chambersburg nearly forty years ago. These included arson, rape, murder, kidnapping, attempted suicide, the paranormal, prison breaks – all of it leavened by the more prosaic aspects of life in a picturesque small town in central Pennsylvania’s Cumberland Valley. He has now collected his memories – along with explorations into the slippery nature of memory – in a non-fiction book he's called American Berserk: A Cub Reporter, a Small-Town Daily, the Schizo ‘70s. Praise for Bill Morris: Motor City Burning “Rich and thrilling.” – Kirkus Reviews “A crackling pace.” – The New York Times “Outstanding.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review) All Souls’ Day “Bill Morris is an exceptionally gifted and savvy writer. The comparison to Graham Greene is fully merited.” -- Nelson DeMille Motor City “A wonderful job…a comprehensive portrait of American life in the ‘50s.” – Michico Kakutani, The New York Times “A vivid and entertaining expedition.” – Loren D. Estleman, The Washington Post “A hipper, sharper Ragtime.” – Details American Berserk Authored by Bill Morris
