    Summary of A Mother’s Reckoning by Sue Klebold | Includes Analysis
     
     
     
    Preview:
     
    In her memoir A Mother’s Reckoning, Sue Klebold struggles
     
    to come to terms with her son Dylan’s role in the infamous
     
    Columbine High School shooting. Writing 16 years after the
     
    shooting, she reflects on when and where things went wrong
     
    for Dylan—and how she and her husband, who were loving
     
    parents, could have missed the warning signs.
     
    Klebold’s story begins with the voicemail that changed
     
    her life. At lunchtime on April 20, 1999, in her office in
     
    Littleton, Colorado, she listened to a cryptic message from
     
    her husband, Tom. Though she intuited that something
     
    had happened to one of their two children, she had no
     
    way of knowing that Dylan was already a murderer.
     
     
     
    Returning Tom’s call, she had what would be the
     
    first of many vague and unsatisfying conversations that
     
    day. Her husband knew there had been a shooting at
     
    Columbine, Dylan’s high school, but little else...

    There was no possibility of taking a walk that day.  We had been wandering, indeed, in the leafless shrubbery an hour in the morning; but since dinner (Mrs. Reed, when there was no company, dined early) the cold winter wind had brought with it clouds so sombre, and a rain so penetrating, that further out-door exercise was now out of the question.
    
    I was glad of it: I never liked long walks, especially on chilly afternoons: dreadful to me was the coming home in the raw twilight, with nipped fingers and toes, and a heart saddened by the chidings of Bessie, the nurse, and humbled by the consciousness of my physical inferiority to Eliza, John, and Georgiana Reed.

    TAGLINE: While vacationing in Paris, the lives of an American family collide with the fatal automobile crash of the world’s most beloved Princess. INSPIRED BY A TRUE STORY. 
    Princess Diana was killed on August 31, 1997 in a car crash in Paris. Where were you when you heard the news? Everybody has an answer, but nobody has an answer quite like Robin Firestone and Jack Firestone, the wife-and-husband team who have co-authored "CHASING DIANA: PERCEPTION VS. REALITY." 
    The happenstance and capriciousness of life places an American family in the seminal historic moment of the shocking death of Princess Diana in this dramatic, though breezy and light thriller/drama. A bit off-the-wall at times, yet always laced with a serious dose of wry humor and pathos, this book has the quirky endearing feel of THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL but with the macabre darkness and ironic style of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN. With an urbane sensibility coupled with a universally recognized subject matter, "CHASING DIANA: PERCEPTION VS. REALITY" will appeal to international audiences. 
    Included in this volume is a very rare Afterword, as the reader experiences a behind-the-scenes look at the trial that shook Great Britain to its core. After ten years of trying in vain to bring the truth to the forefront, on December 3, 2007, the Firestones were finally called upon to give live testimony in London at the Royal Courts of Justice for the "Coroner's Inquests into the Deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales and Mr. Dodi Al Fayed." They describe their ordeal for the first time ever in print, in this Special Edition. 
    And also included is Mr. Firestone's personal journal entitled "Tunnel Vision," which gives personal insight, from a subjective point-of-view, to the car crash, the investigation, the police, the paparazzi... and the relentlessness and restlessness of the news media that controls our lives.
