  Book Talk - Best book on the ED GEIN case? - I know he was the inspiration behind Robert Bloch's Psycho, but I really want to know more about the case. I see that there's Ed Gein Psycho! by Paul Anthony Woods and Deviant: The Shocking True Story of the Original Psycho by Harold Schechter. I'm sure there are more, but.   Ed Gein was a real life killer and grave robber who created furniture and household items out of dead bodies, and he was creating masks and suits out of skin to wear at home. Leatherface's home also has furniture made of bones, including a lampshade crafted out of a human face. This morbid fascination with death is also portrayed in Psycho via Bates and his taxidermy hobby.

From "America's principal chronicler of its greatest psychopathic killers" (Boston Book Review) comes the definitive account of Ed Gein, a mild-mannered Wisconsin farmhand who stunned an unsuspecting nation - and redefined the meaning of the word psycho. The story of the killer Ed Gein is one of the weirdest, most disturbing ever, one that has inspired horror stories as diverse as Psycho" and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." His crimes, which were committed in and around Plainfield, Wisconsin, included exhuming corpses from local graveyards and making trophies and keepsakes from their skin and bones/5.

Although Bloch didn’t know much about Ed Gein, Psycho had a similar backstory. That is, it’s about a man who lives all his life in a small community and outwardly appears normal but hidden from view, he is a killer. In this regard, Robert Bloch’s protagonist, Norman Bates, was much like Gein. "Ed Gein--Psycho!" does document the crimes Gein, though much of the material is apocryphal, but the book is as much a study of the fascination with and even worship of Gein. A significant portion of the book is devoted to the films mentioned above and to the merchandise that seeks to capitalize on the Gein Reviews:
