Content descriptions

Formatted Contents Note: He would try hard to be a man -- The farmer turns gangster -- John Dillinger, Houdini of the outlaws -- Pulling that off was worth ten years of my life -- Dillinger land -- You can't get away with it -- Epilogue: Dillinger's ghost.
Summary, etc.: In an era that witnessed the rise of celebrity outlaws like Baby Face Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Bonnie and Clyde, John Dillinger was the most famous and flamboyant of them all. Reports on the man and his misdeeds--spiced with accounts of his swashbuckling bravado and cool daring--provided an America worn down by the Great Depression with a salacious mix of sex and violence that proved irresistible. In Dillinger's Wild Ride, Elliott J. Gorn provides a riveting account of the year between 1933 and 1934, when the Dillinger gang pulled over a dozen bank jobs, and stole hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Subject: Dillinger, John, 1903-1934.
