Outlaws by Javier Cercas


Javier Cercas

A Spanish lawyer recounts his adolescent career as member of a gang led by Zarco a notorious gangster now serving a life sentence. The story spans a period of thirty years and there are some interesting insights into the criminal mind. Good descriptions of the slums and red light districts of Gerona, but, for me, no particular Spanish atmosphere. Worth a try for those who enjoy true crime and crime biographies.
