Booze & Book Club Midtown Monthly Meetup

June's meetup selection will be, "Handsome Harry" by James Carlos Blake.

 

From Amazon.com:

 

"Harry Pierpont and John Dillinger were die-hard and deadly partners who made national headlines with their daring bank hold-ups and gun battles -- and they had a lot of laughs while they were at it. They were known as the Dillinger Gang but at its heart was "Handsome Harry" Pierpont -- tough, fearless, intelligent, and sworn to live by no law but his own. Presented as his intimate "confessions," Harry's story takes us from his teenage days as a small-time crook to his fateful meeting with the equally young Dillinger to the pinnacle of his notoriety, and to his final hours in the penitentiary death house.

Crafted in James Carlos Blake's signature style of fast-paced violence, sizzling sex, and darkly raucous humor, Handsome Harry re-creates a thrilling chapter from the chronicles of American crime."

 

Members can RSVP beginning today 5/16/13.

    Had to order the book, and it didn't get here in time to finish, but I'm enjoying rereading it. Alas something came up so I'll carry on the tradition of not showing up when the book I picked is being discussed. :( See y'all next time.
