Summary
After he's released from prison after a 17-year stint, Willie Sutton looks back on his life as he leads a reporter and a photographer around New York City. Born in the Irishtown section of Brooklyn, he soon finds a way out through crime and bank robbery. All the while, though, he is searching for his one true love, Bess.
Critique
Sutton, an actual historical figure, makes an interesting character in Moehringer's hands: he's whip smart, reads philosophy and politics and yearns for a life out of poverty. Recommend.
