Fox Butterfield talked about his recent book, All God’s Children: The Bosket Family and the American Tradition of Violence, published by Alfred A Knopf. It focuses on Willie Bosket, who was convicted of murdering several people on a New York subway when he was fifteen years old. Mr. Butterfield examined the Bosket family history as a way to demonstrate the source of Mr. Bosket’s violent behavior. In his book, he argues that the origins of violence in the United States are geographically located in the antebellum South. close
