On April 19, 1971, Charles Manson is sentenced to death for conspiracy in the Tate–LaBianca murders. His sentence will later be commuted to life imprisonment. He acted as a figurehead controlling a group of mostly young women who worshipped him and did unspeakable things that he commanded. Emma Cline tries to tap into this magnetism of cults, and especially during this time and its effect on the young female psyche with her fiction book, The Girls.
