NEW YORK (AP) — THE author of a best-seller about the Columbine school shooting is working on a book about Parkland.

Harper announced Tuesday that Dave Cullen's "Parkland" is scheduled to come out in February, timed to the one-year anniversary of the massacre at Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. According to Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, Cullen "burrows into the hearts" of the Parkland student survivors as the follows their lives in the months after the shooting.

Cullen's "Columbine" came out in 2009, a decade after the Colorado shooting, and spent several weeks on The New York Times' best-seller list. He has been writing about Parkland for Vanity Fair.




Sweet Jesus! Timed just to make the one year anniversary. What a money hungry bastard!  Rolling Eyes

 But I'm honestly just curious about how Dave is gonna spin this one!  No  Suspect

I wonder if he'll write that Cruz wasn't actually bullied and is a psychopath?

It could have been pity sex, but there were also stories going around that he had raped his ex gf. But those were never proven either way. scratch

I'll read it when it comes out. My plan is to read it while at barnes & noble without buying it and possibly discuss what i think of it. I'm probably gonna laugh at it, but maybe not, who knows.

Nikolas was actually a sociopath, he ruled the school like a top dog never getting bullied, there might have been with a relationship with a 23 year old named Brenda. - Cullen

Really? I don't keep up with this shooting. I read a little here and there and have watched a few videos on YouTube but most of these other shootings don't interest me.

I saw people talking about how Cullen might make a book or something about Parkland. I didn't think that would happen but now it looks like he is? I guess he can use his Columbine expertise for his new school shooting book.

I hope he tells the truth about both David Hogg and Emma Gonalez and not try to whitewash them.

Sadly all I ask is that Cullen at least stick as close to the truth as he is capable of, without getting carried away in trying to make it sell better by making it more dramatic.  Rolling Eyes

Although I will admit to being curious to see what he writes about this so called "Demon" voice that Cruz says told him to kill, burn, destroy, etc. scratch

I may be wrong but I don't think "pity sex" is a real thing. Why would a girl have sex with him if she didn't want to? It may not have been a love story but it may not have been pity sex either. He had a girlfriend so it means that it was possible for him to be loved, even if it did not last. I don't like to talk about this topic because I don't really feel comfortable talking about it and I don't think it is important to understand the shooters, but what is important is to see them as they were: people much worse than Nikolas Cruz (obviously before the shooting) have a girlfriend, so why is it that weird that he had sex once?

Did you say that you read the newer version of Cullen's book or the original?

I only have the original copy that I bought back in 2011 so it had the crap in it that he later cut out. Did he only cut out the parts about Brenda Parker and leave the parts about Eric getting chicks and using slices of pizza as an angle to get dates? Or did he cut all that nonsense out too?

No mention of the cookies Dylan brought in or the fact he was a straight up player taking Robyn to the prom, having a date with Kristin shortly before, kissing Devon on the head and Marla had a crush...nope... all Eric...

Why this early ? His Columbine book was published a decade after the event took place and he fucked up a lot of parts in that book. He could at least try to wait for the criminal trial to end.

He has also timed it to hit right at the first year anniversary. I would say this was to maximize the interest, and in a round about way his cash flow. Rolling Eyes

From the wording in the article it sounds like he's gonna focus on the survivors instead of Nikolas Cruz, which, sorry to say, makes my interest drop down to zero.

Maybe he'll ride on the SJW bandwagon and blame it all on "toxic masculinity"/"racism"/Trump/whatever.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  I think you wont be alone in that. The main draw for most is trying to figure out what made Nik tick, what happened in his life that would have drove him to do the things he did, etc.

If Cullen's book is mainly going to be on the victims/survivors, then he will be missing the biggest section of people who would even be interested in the book to start with.

Hopefully Cullen doesn’t write that Eric Harris made Nikolas Cruz snap after being a reluctant follower despite him being dead for 18 years

So, I just discovered that the book already came out. It doesn't even mention Nikolas by name.

It's essentially the gun control bible

Yeah I read it. He obviously made a big change in how he wrote it compared to the columbine one, it’s about the way students organised themselves and March for our lives rather than any why or how which he got pulled up on with his first book. It’s a story to tell but it’s not the story of the incident itself.

I can't wait for Dave Cullen's new amazing medical book on how to amputate healthy limbs using solely alcohol as anesthesia.
