Known as "Willie the Actor" for his clever and disarming impersonations, Willie Sutton's career was an amazingly successful one of fabulous bank robberies, daring prison breaks and front page headlines, all of which captured the imagination of America. Yet Willie Sutton was "clean" - throughout his life of crime he never killed anyone, and he was known as much for his intelligence, manners and dapper elegance as for his audacious escapades. "I, Willie Sutton" is Sutton's confession, composed with the assistance of journalist and author Quentin Reynolds. Revealing the secrets of a successful criminal, it was originally published in 1953. Detailing dozens of skillfully planned and carefully executed bank robberies as well as several prison escapes, this is the story of a brilliant performer and criminal mastermind, his deeds, his associates, and his women - a tale of brains, talent and energy fighting against the forces of law and order.
