520    On a frigid winter's night in 1973, William "Rabbit" Wells,
       a young man of mixed race, was shot and killed by a white 
       policeman named William Sorgie outside a bar in 
       Bernardsville, New Jersey. The shooting, which was later 
       ruled an accident, stunned the inhabitants of 
       Bernardsville and neighboring Basking Ridge. Loizeaux 
       revisits that fateful night in a haunting memoir that 
       speaks to us all. With clear-eyed compassion and unsparing
       honesty, The Shooting of Rabbit Wells recreates the lives 
       of both victim and killer and the forces that brought them
       together. By giving us the life of Rabbit Wells, Loizeaux 
       makes us understand - and feel - how unacceptable and 
       irreparable its loss was, and how deeply the bullet that 
       killed him is lodged in the American identity.
