27. We interview Jennifer Reeser, author of The LaLaurie Horror. It's been a good year for Madame Delphine LaLaurie. This infamous lady was perhaps the United States' first serial killer, running her own house of horrors in old New Orleans. Now Jennifer Reeser has written an epic about Madame LaLaurie in the style of Dante's Inferno. Oh, and by the way, Kathy Bates is currently playing Madame LaLaurie in American Horror Story: Coven. It's a really good year for Madame LaLaurie.
