Lacy Johnson

The Other Side

Sunday, July 27



Lacy Johnson was held prisoner in a basement apartment that her ex-boyfriend rented and outfitted for the sole purpose of raping and killing her. She escaped, but not unscathed. THE OTHER SIDE is the haunting account of a first passionate and then abusive relationship, the events leading to Johnson's kidnapping and imprisonment, her dramatic escape, and her hard-fought struggle to recover. At once thrilling, terrifying, harrowing, and hopeful, THE OTHER SIDE offers more than just a true crime record. In language both stark and poetic, Johnson weaves together a richly personal narrative with police reports, psychological evaluations, and neurobiological investigations, provoking both troubling and timely questions about gender roles and the epidemic of violence against women.


Lacy M. Johnson is the author of TRESPASSES: A Memoir and is coartistic director of the multimedia project [the invisible city]. She lives in Houston with her husband and children.
