A Father’s Story By Lionel Dahmer

Donna Velasquez
Student, BA

As a student of psychology, I am fascinated by serial killers.

I watched a documentary with Lionel and Jeffery Dahmer in which Lionel Dahmer mentioned a book he wrote. I found the name of the book on Amazon and bought it. Once I began reading I could not put it down. This book was definitely a page turner. As a psych student I read this book to get a deeper understanding of how the father of a serial killer might have prevented the many murders his son became responsible for. Can you or can’t you prevent raising a serial killer? This book helps this answer and many more you might have on this subject.
