About the Author

J.R. Moehringer, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing in 2000, is a former national correspondent for the Los Angeles Times and a former Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. Moehringer is the author of the New York Times bestselling The Tender Bar and coauthor of Open by Andre Agassi.


Moehringer offers a fictionalized biography of gentleman bank robber and accomplished prison escape artist Willie Sutton, one of the most famous criminals of the early 20th century. The author appreciates the contradictions and conflicts in the contemporary accounts of Sutton as well as in the subject's own autobiographies. With a mix of fact and imagination, the listener is drawn into Willie's life of love and passion, hard time served, and hard choices. The literary device of a lifetime recalled in a day flows well, as does the husky narration by Dylan Baker, who infuses the presentation with just the right level of Brooklyn accent. VERDICT For crime, biography, and historical fiction fans. ["History lovers will enjoy this fictional biography of a modern icon of crime," read the review of the Hyperion hc, LJ 8/12.-Ed.]-J.
