Interesting and unsettling read about the serendipitous identification of a lampshade made of human skin in post-Katrina New Orleans. Jacobson does a great job of sketching the myriad characters he encounters during his search for an appropriate resting place for the lampshade. There is no neat conclusion to this story; Jacobson places the account as part of a broad history of cruelty and fear as well as a particular representation of the Holocaust.

A page turner. Hard to put down. A great read.
