The writings of journalist Elizabeth Garver Jordan are featured in The Case of Lizzie Borden and Other Writings (Penguin Classics) celebrating her life and career. Jordan rose to prominence as one of the few women journalists covering the Lizzie Borden murder trial in 1893. Her experience covering this case and other gruesome tragedies opened the door to a new passion — writing detective novels and true crime stories. In addition to the theme of crime itself, Jordan’s work also explored crimes against women and the women who became criminals. Through this collection of her works, the editors hope to inspire writers and journalists by examining Jordan’s place in history and impact on discussions among crime, gender, feminism, and the #MeToo movement.
