Bonnie and Clyde Summary


Bonnie and Clyde: The Lives Behind the Legend by Paul Schneider

Set in a dirt-poor Texas landscape that spawned the star-crossed outlaws, this brilliantly researched and dramatically crafted true story opens with a murderous jail break and ends with the ambush and shoot-out that consigned their bullet-riddled bodies to the front seat of a hopped-up getaway car. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow's relationship was a toxic combination of infatuation blended with an instinct for going too far too fast. The poetry-writing, petite Bonnie and her diminutive, gun-crazy lover (she was four feet ten inches and he was barely nine stone) drove lawmen wild, slipping the noose every time. That is, until their infamy caught up with them in the famous ambush that literally blasted them away. Without glamourising the killers, or vilifying the cops, Bonnie and Clyde is alive with action and high-level entertainment and provides a fascinating picture of America's most famous outlaw couple and the culture that created them. Paul Schneider is the author of three critically acclaimed books, including a New York Times Book Review notable book. He spends his time between Florida and Massachusetts.

Bonnie and Clyde Reviews


"When David Newman and I were writing the screen play for "Bonnie and Clyde" we did an enormous amount of research, but not nearly as much as Paul Schneider. And it has paid off handsomely; he has written a splendid biography of two iconic American gangsters who were 'not only outlaws, but outcasts.' From the first page, waiting for a prison break on a foggy morning in East Texas to the last, the book is riveting and unforgettable."-Robert Benton"A nonfiction novel in the style of Capote's "In Cold Blood" . . . . Schneider's Bonnie and Clyde presents the story the way it might have been from the inside."-Allen Barra, "The Chicago Tribune"
