How could a guy born in the slums of Brooklyn in 1901 win the girl of his dreams? By becoming America’s most successful bank robber and a hero to the little guy. Pulitzer-prize winning journalist and memoirist J.R. Moehringer presents a fictionalized version of an audacious and compelling character in Sutton: A Novel (Hyperion, $27.99). Over three decades Sutton became so good at breaking into banks, and such a master at breaking out of prisons, police called him one of the most dangerous men in New York, and the FBI put him on its first-ever Most Wanted List. And yet, when he was finally caught for good in 1952, crowds surrounded the jail and chanted his name. “. . . a mesmerizing portrait of a remarkable man. . .”—Publishers Weekly. Meohringer is a former correspondent for the Los Angeles Times. He won the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing and is the author of the memoir The Tender Bar.
