Luke Taylor (Author of Vault of Dreams)

The Minds of Billy Milligan by Daniel Keyes is a challenging look at the controversial case of William Stanley Milligan, a man diagnosed with multiple disorder, who was acquitted for several violent and heinous crimes by pleading insanity as his defense. Armed with sympathetic psychologists and skilled lawyers, the strange case of Billy Milligan is chronicled in great detail by Daniel Keyes, best known for his book, Flowers For Algernon, which also delves deeply into murky waters of human psychology. Daniel Keyes’ narrative flair sensationalizes quite a bit at times, making this “nonfiction” piece a tough pill to swallow. No one can argue Billy had a difficult upbringing and endured countless horrors, but Keyes’ narrative liberties in establishing the many voices of the personalities and their names and their characters and their psychological space feels uneasy to read in retrospect, as the account goes into great detail in many places, and yet, the human being that is Milligan offers no recompense to those innocents he has hurt. Where many in the narrative seemingly fall captive to the magical powers of an adept conman, becoming deeply empathetic, negative viewpoints hold much more weight though are few and far between in the book, and feel almost like villainous voices. One of the biggest problems concerning Milligan was the publicity of his case and his trial, and all that came of it should stand as a warning to the legal system of the United States as to keep justice a swift and quiet affair, as committers of violent crimes like Milligan do not deserve any opportunity to become folk heroes or talk show subjects. The press can only make a mess. One can only feel negative emotions throughout the course of reading this, and while I cannot blame Daniel Keyes for his work in covering this story, I cannot compliment him either. His account is competently written, but very challenging nonetheless. Careful analysis of the culture at this time sheds light on a sexist and misogynistic undertone lurking beneath the truest facts of this case, and I do believe that if the same thing were to happen today, with proper advances in medicine, psychotherapy, politics, and law, that such a strange and sordid circus would not be allowed to leave the ground, and those innocents who had been hurt and abused by such crimes would see true justice. As difficult as it is to read, I was very thankful to read it with the amazing Sveta, and I do consider it important material for those researching United States law or mental health issues, or those looking for various and high profile true crime stories of historical significance. To add to the overall strangeness of this whole affair, both Milligan and Keyes passed away in 2014. A follow up book, called The Milligan Wars is yet to be published here in the US, despite being published overseas (in countries such as Japan as early as 1994) due to Milligan’s own lawsuit against the state of Ohio! For of all things, mistreatment! I do wonder how acquittal of 3 counts of violent crime constitutes any form of mistreatment! Again, it is impossible to view this positively, unless we can hope a case like this brings about a better life for those in the future and great social changes. It is my hope that the women victimized by Milligan were able to live healthy, happy lives, because this book and this account did nothing to help them or to heal their hearts or lives, and I truly hope this book not do them even more harm than they already received at Milligan’s hand. Read this by yourself at your own risk, read it in class or a place of study, or read it with someone you love and trust because it is a very difficult subject and certainly provides food for thought.

Taylor and Luke Storyline PART 2 (Tayluke)

I wish Becca had been developed into more of a well-rounded character this season. As it is, her tragic arc feels too much like a plot device. While Dan is struggling to keep his daughter out of jail, the cops are rounding up the boys who beat up Taylor. Taylor is surprised that Anne is happy about more carnage and destruction in other families. She got the Oxy from a friend and Steph Hope Davis confesses that she got the weed from her. Becca is looking at a level-six felony, which means six months to two years in a juvenile-detention center.

The show, which airs Wednesdays at 10 p. The storyline involves gay teens, rape, homophobia, and institutional denial, and these two actors bring the kind of emotional honesty and authenticity to their roles that truly elevates drama. They ground the show in a realism that cuts through all the excessive cinematic footwork and tonal monotony. As the central character, Taylor, who was raped at a party, Connor Jessup has been outstanding. He plays Taylor with the kind of muffled, introverted tension that would never be confused with quiet.
