This is the real story of Bonnie and Clyde and their troubled times, delivered with cinematic sweep by a masterful storyteller.
“Engaging. . . reads like a road story—two kids from the Dallas slums in a fast car, headed to nowhere good.” 9 781416 557074 —The New Yorker
“A fine work of history. . . . Easily readable and includes much of the last
two decades’ new scholarship. . . . Especially good at . . . placing Bonnie
and Clyde in context.” —Bryan Burrough,
The New York Times Book Review
“A rollicking read, an astonishing story of perseverance in the face of hopelessness,
and a perverse tale of two lovers whom only death could part.”
—Mark Dunkelman, The Providence Journal
“Guinn cuts through the sex and gunsmoke surrounding the gangster
love story of Bonnie and Clyde. . . . A welcome corrective.”
—J. Lynn Lunsford, The Wall Street Journal
“Guinn has deftly restored the humanity of America’s best known
crime couple, stripping away the Hollywood glamour and hype with
the unvarnished but equally compelling truth.”
—Kathleen Krog, The Miami Herald
