Every Secret Thing: Patricia Campbell Hearst Patty Hearst HC Book | eBayFor the titles that have filmed adaptations, we will also be looking at the movies as we go along. As I mentioned in announcing this selection, the Manson Murders seemed to be everywhere this summer, marking 50 years since those crimes. But also marked 45 years since the violent kidnapping of media heiress Patty Hearst and her strange and traumatic misadventure with a self-proclaimed revolutionary army. The book concludes with her capture by the FBI and the lengthy trial-turned-media circus, prison term, and quest for a presidential pardon. When the SLA buys her conversion to their cause and the blindfold comes off, the imagined nationwide network of revolutionaries, somewhere between the Black Panthers and the Weather Underground, are revealed to be a group of insufferable white hipsters desperate to prove themselves to be down with their soul-brother leader, General Field Marshal Cinque Mtume, AKA Donald DeFreeze, an escaped ex-con who is nearly constantly drunk on hobo wine. Hearst is renamed Tania, although it is revealed that she is actually Tania II, the original Tania having abandoned the cause and decamped some months earlier. Constantly thrown in with sociopathic, bickering married couple Teko and Yolanda Bill and Emily Harris , Hearst resolves to do what ever she needs to do to survive.

If Yolanda hadn't been assigned to Teko's team, then Teko mightn't have felt compelled to prove himself to her by shoplifting a bandolier from Mel's Sporting Goods store. If he hadn't grabbed the bandolier, there wouldn't have been the ruckus that led to Teko, Yolanda and Tania's Patricia Hearst getting separated from the rest of the so-called Symbionese Liberation Army. And if they hadn't gotten separated, they too would have died in the fiery shootout with the police that May 17, , in the 84th Street safe house in Los Angeles.
