Riveting read

When bank robber William Sutton is finally released from prison, he finds himself the guest of a newspaper man and a photographer that want the story of his life from his lips. Willie, however, is only going to do it his way. And what evolves from a simple chronological tour of New York and its boroughs becomes a story of love, loss, and redemption.

an interesting insight into the life and mind of one of America's most wanted bank robbers. Willie Sutton had a policy of not hurting anyone during his robberies and simply robbed banks because he hated them so much due to his belief they were the cause of the financial ruin of many millions of Americans during the depression of the 30's. Sound familiar? the style it is written is one of flashback and present day activities and paints a vivid picture of life in the 30's, 40's and 50's.
