Two decades ago author Maura Curley wrote “Duck in a Raincoat,” a scathing portrait of Joe Ricci, Elan’s founder, racetrack owner, and two-time candidate for governor. The book included interviews with former residents, and investigators from three states that independently corroborated Elan’s bizarre punishments.

Now, Curley has issued an Amazon Kindle edition with a new introduction, chapter updates, and a dramatic epilogue, which includes new testimony from former Elan residents at the Michael Skakel’s murder trial in 2002, an investigation report from New York’s Department of Education in 2007, as well as Curley’s December 2012 interview with former Maine state senator, Bill Diamond, who helped Elan renew its licensing from Maine’s Department of Education from 1997 through 2014.
