THE CRATE is a true story about a gruesome crime that traumatized the author's family, especially her fragile parents: it dredged up their memories of the Holocaust-of surviving concentration camps, cattle cars, death marches--and forced them to confront violence yet again. The themes are relevant and timely: of refugees and the need for sanctuary; domestic violence and racial intolerance; and the seemingly limitless human capacity for evil. Also, there's the whole story behind the murder.
