Last Call is the true story of a killer that targeted gay men in New York in the 1980s and 90s. Each murder is documented in detail and in a way that makes you feel like you've gotten to know each victim just before they are taken away too soon. Every memoir that focuses on marginalized groups is hard to read. I find that the hardest texts to digest are the ones most important to dive into and take seriously. This story is one of the most poignant that I have read, especially as someone who strives to be the best ally I can be. Reading these true crime stories that have plagued the LGBTQ community in recent years, simply because of who they are is gut wrenching. The stories are told in a very engaging way and the book was nearly impossible to put down.
If you are into true crime podcasts, I highly recommend this book! It reads very much like an episode of a podcast.
