Give this to School Kids if you want to get them reading,
This review is from: You Can't Win (Paperback)
Hardy boys gone wrong. This supposedly real account of a cat burglar's (more so safe robber and Prison escapee) life and adventures.
Although it takes a while to get going its worth it - I read this book years ago and it frequently pops into my head.
Jack is an intelligent turn of the century guy who ended up in the wrong business.
William Burroughs favorite book.
Read it before you see the upcoming movie.
