Karen Sypher's new book, Guilty Until Proven Innocent: "The Karen Sypher Story," might be the most perfectly planned bestseller: it was released this month, just in time for a deep run for Louisville, and it's got a ton of rape, just like The Kite Runner.
First, let's talk that cover. Namely, what is up with that cover? Who is that child? Where did she get it? Is it an artist's rendering of Sypher's and Rick Pitino's aborted love child? Wouldn't a more appropriate cover photo be Sypher giving her lawyer a blowjob? (And here is where we point out that the book is titled Guilty Until Proven Innocent, a sentiment that would carry more weight if Sypher hadn't been proven guilty.) She's in the middle of seven-year prison sentence, which presumably gave her plenty of time to work on this self-published work, for now only available in E-Book form.
