Praise for the work of Edward Bunker:
"The best first-person crime novel I've ever read." --Quentin Tarantino
"Bunker is a true original of American letters." --James Ellroy
"Bunker is among the tiny band of American prisoner writers whose work possesses integrity, craftsmanship, and moral passion....An artist with a unique and compelling voice." --William StyronFrom the Back Cover :
Here is the quintessential story of a young hoodlum's coming of age, from the undisputed master of the genre.
Alex Hamilton is young, intelligent, savvy, and independent--but also subject to violent fits of rage. Raised within the confines of a system that has done nothing but provide him with pain, his frustration and anger are completely natural--and inherently dangerous. Rebellious since his parents split up, Alex is constantly running from foster homes and institutions, yearning to be with his father, a broken man who cannot give his son the home he desparately needs. As Alex is pulled between well-meaning but exhausted social workers and viciously cruel authority figures, his emotions and actions are forever careening off these two disparate influences. Only one constant remains: his no-good, criminal-minded peers, who are all too ready to plant illegal ideas in a young, bright mind that's already well on its way to social deviancy. LITTLE BOY BLUE vividly documents this destruction, allowing the reader to sift through the wreckage of a childhood gone terribly awry.
