But he gained a fair measure of unwanted media attention as the father of Jeffrey Dahmer, a serial killer who was convicted in the early 1990s of murdering fifteen youths in the Milwaukee area. And to a lesser extent, we are get a sense of the victims and their families, but very rarely do we ever hear from the family members of the killers and what they must go through as they are often turned into pariahs for what their children/siblings did. This could have been a searing odyssey of truthfulness and revelation, giving the reader real insight into a father's relationship with one of the most notorious monsters of our time.

In this deeply personal account, Lionel reflects on his son's troubled childhood and the shocking crimes he committed. It's hard enough to wrap one's head around the atrocity known as serial murder, now imagine that that the serial murderer is your son. Heartbreaking in parts this book really opened up my eyes to the fallout of his crimes, the effect on his family, who has no idea.The sadness and the inescapable reality of a book like this is that Dahmer, like the rest of us, will never really know what made his son do what he did.

His social life, which should have been expanding, narrowed to a circle that was no larger than his mind, an imagined world in which his friends were phantoms, his lovers mere lumps of unmoving flesh.Somsack Sinthasomphone had been an innocent victim, by law a child, and my son had purposely lured him to his new apartment, drugged, and then sexually abused him. Dahmer questions himself if he should have known what his son was up to and tries to figure out if there were signs in Jeffreys childhood that he was disturbed. I found out that after this book was published that Joyce Dahmer, Jeffrey’s mother, interpreted it as a direct attempt to blame her, the mother. or accompanying admission that Dahmer Senior had also had similar desires "but never took them that far", as if he is so desperate to claim any sort of emotional connection that he is willing to take some sort of pale credit for his son's monstrosities. Maybe it's because secretly I am a sicko who wants to know more about the minds of serial killers and their families.

Dahmer's story is terrifying precisely because his blindness to his son's insanity was inseparable from his love for him. Both Apple and Google state that they ensure that only users who have actually downloaded the app can submit a review. For the most part, Jeff was a fairly average kid, who grew into a awkward teen whose alcoholism went unnoticed by his parents who were distracted by their own problems.

His father sees many similarities between himself and his son: both are emotionally distant, fear abandonment, like to control people and feel inadequate.

At first he seems to attribute some blame to Jeffery Dahmer's mother and her mental health issues, but later suggests the problem was due to medications prescribed during the pregnancy.He provides a unique perspective on the events that unfolded and offers a heartfelt exploration of the complexities of family, mental illness, and the devastating impact of Jeffrey's actions. Jeffery Dahmer developed a drinking problem in high school, but his father seems oblivious to this and many other things.
