About this title:

Synopsis: Somewhere between the hardboiled talk of Dashiell Hammett and the dustbowl poetry of John Steinbeck lies the doomed romanticism of Edward Anderson's Thieves Like Us. When three small-time country gangsters break jail they return, like moths to the flame, to the only life they know - small town bank-robbing. And when Bowie, the youngest of them, falls in love with Keechie, one of the older gangster's cousins, it becomes a classic tale of love on the run with nowhere to hide and no hope of reprieve. First published in 1937, Thieves Like Us was powerfully adapted for the screen by Nicholas Ray as They Live by Night and once again under its original title by Robert Altman in 1973.

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.
