Über diesen Titel

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.

About the Author:

"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."

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
