Escritores delincuentes / Criminal Writers
Non-fiction , 2011
What do characters as different as Anne Perry and William Burroughs have in common? Or Karl May and Chester Himes? They are all writers, certainly, but they also share a feature that not everyone knows about: they all committed serious crimes. This book brings together a long list of writers who crossed the line and broke the law: François Villon, Maurice Sachs, Edward Bunker, Ken Kesey, Jeffrey Archer, Kristian Bala, and a long list of other authors who were murderers, poisoners, traffickers, thieves, smugglers or fraudsters. Many of them led lives that were just as astonishing – or more so – than their written works.
