New Book on Kevin Spacey Beats the Rapp Has Epstein & History of Abuse, Trial from Inside

Review, Patreon Maxwell Book Schulte Book
Books - Guardian - Honduras - NY Mag

LITERARY SDNY Review, Oct 20 – In October 2022 Kevin Spacey was in court facing claims of sexual misconduct against then 14-year-old Anthony Rapp in 1986.

On October 20, the jury found no liability. Spacey beat the Rapp.

   Now, published hours after the verdict there is a book by Matthew Russell Lee, who live tweeted and reported on the trial daily, and put questions including about links to Jeffrey Epstein to Spacey on Worth Street outside.

    The author was each day in the courtroom of U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Louis A. Kaplan, and tracking down the claims of Kevin's brother Randy Fowler, who confirmed their father was a neo-Nazi but alleges Kevin stole his story.

   As the trial wound down, SDNY-admitted lawyer Matthew Russell Lee dug deeper into Spacey's time with Ghislaine Maxwell, as they sat on dual thrones.

   Material on these connections, the trial and even some more speculative and literary excursions featuring recurring characters Kurt Wheelock and Michael Randall Long, featured in the Ghislaine Maxwell book "Maximum Maxwell" as noted by New York Magazine, here, made its way at the speed of the Internet into the new book

"American Ugly: Kevin Spacey Beats the Rapp, But Dark Secrets Made Public in SDNY Live," by Matthew Russell Lee

  E-book here; paperbook forthcoming. 

    This review will leave it to others to find over-reaches and typos. For his reporting, Lee was banned from the United Nations in 2018 by SG Antonio Guterres, whose Media Accrediation chief Melissa Fleming has ignored appeals from a UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression and, pro bono, the law firm of Quinn Emanuel.

   One might surmise that history leads to some of the book's (over?) identification with the defendant.  

    A full scope instantaneous view of and taking off from trials like US v. Trevor Milton seems to be Inner City Press' project here.

And here it is.
