In 1994, while in prison and on trial for double murder, O.J. Simpson received over 300,000 letters. To help pay for his defense and maintain public support, they were published in the book, I Want to Tell You by O.J. Simpson: My Response to Your Letters, Your Messages, Your Questions. Alternately humorous, disturbing and poignant, Goodnight O.J. looks at the cultural phenomenon that is our relationship with O.J., by exploring the minds of the people who wrote him.
