Pretty Boy Floyd

 

Larry McMurtry, Diana Ossana

 

1994, Simon & Schuster

 

The best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Lonesome Dove showcases the life of Pretty Boy Floyd, the irresistible young gangster who charmed his way into Americans' hearts during the 1920s even as he robbed their banks. 200,000 first printing.

 

The time is 1925. The place, St. Louis, Missouri. Charley Floyd, a good-looking, sweet-smiling country boy from Oklahoma, is about to rob his first armored car.
Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Larry McMurtry and his writing partner, Diana Ossana, Pretty Boy Floyd traces the wild career of this legendary American folk hero, a young man so charming that it's hard not to like him, even as he's robbing you at gunpoint. From the bank heists and shootings that make him Public Enemy Number One to the women who love him, from the glamour-hungry nation that worships him to the G-men who track Charley down, Pretty Boy Floyd is both a richly comic masterpiece and an American tragedy about the price of fame and the corruption of innocence.
