Invasion of Privacyby Larry Parr
Invasion of Privacy is based on the lawsuit brought against Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (The Yearling) by her neighbor, Zelma Cason.
Cason contended that Rawlings’ description of ‘her’ character in Rawlings’ book Cross Creek made her out to be a ‘hussy’ and sued the author for invasion of privacy (the courts of the time found libel to be too ambiguous). It was a cause of action that had never been argued in a Florida court. “The U.S. constitution guarantees citizens a right to free speech and a right to privacy, but conflicts between the two are inevitable. Such is the debate at the heart of Larry Parr’s lively and funny, fact-based Invasion of Privacy." - Sarasota Herald Tribune
