Inhaltsangabe: The Chivalry of Crime mingles the life of an imaginary boy with a factually faithful account of the lives of Jesse James and Robert Ford, the man who killed James. Joshua is determined to get a gun of his owna desire that puts his own life in jeopardy and reveals the painful realities masked by some of North Americas most cherished myths.

Über den Autor: "A good friend of mine claims the first cannon fired in the American Civil War was made in Merthyr Tydfil, the town where I was born, once iron and coal capital of the world but now a rust town. My father worked on the assembly line at a local factory and my mother as a book-keeper in a local store. I'm 100% working class. We got our first television when I was six years old and I sat in my favorite place, under the huge dining table, to watch Wagon Train, Rawhide and Gunsmoke. The first movie I ever saw in a cinema was The Left Handed Gun, with Paul Newman playing Billy the Kid. Growing up in Merthyr was my Wild West. Friday and Saturday nights, bar-fights would break out and spill out onto the streets. A friend of mine was shot to death in a fight with his neighbor and another died in a police chase after stealing a Kawasaki motorcycle. The Wild Bunch. I saw every Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone movie. I was pretty bright in school so I got into University College London. Since then, I've worked in a Feminist Library and taught English in Italy. I met my wife in Italy and moved to America. Here, I've worked in construction as a laborer and as a book keeper, then I got into the MFA writing program at Columbia. Now, for four months of every year I coordinate English and Computer courses in Tibet. Whatever else I do to engage with the world, I always write."
