American Heiress tells the fascinating and incredibly odd story of the kidnapping of Patricia Hearst by the "Symbionese Liberation Army" (SLA) in 1974. Over the course of the next year, Hearst goes from being a victim to a gun toting, bank robbing member of the group before finally being discovered and apprehended. As hilariously ridiculous as the central characters and some of their situations are, this book is interesting and the story is hard to pass up.
