Often-filmed mini-classic about three small-timers who bust out of jail and then go on a bank-robbing spree. They grow ever more daring in their exploits, with a lead character finding a woman who'll go along, but the cops come along and catch the guys one by one. Credited with helping to invent the genre.

About the Author:

Edward Anderson, born in Texas in 1905, grew up in Oklahoma, pursued a writing career that ranged across journalism, pulp fiction and screenwriting. He rode the railways as a hobo during the Depression era and encapsulated his experiences in his classic first novel, Hungry Men (1935) and followed that with his masterpiece Thieves Like Us in 1937. He wrote briefly for Hollywood studios before resuming his career as a journalist in Texas and California. He died in 1969.

Review:

"One of the great forgotten novels of the 1930s" Raymond Chandler
