"Someday they'll go down together / they'll bury them
side by side. / To few itâ€™ll be grief / To the law a relief
/ But itâ€™s death for Bonnie and Clyde.â€ť
of Americaâ€™s most infamous crime spree told in the raw and
honest voice of the woman who lived it, Bonnie
Texas: 1931. Bonnie Parkerâ€™s dreams of the
limelight and a white picket fence are on hold. Sheâ€™s a
waitress in Dallas, endlessly writing letters to the
governor pleading for the release of the man she loves: a
reckless, quick-smiling boy named Clyde Barrow, sentenced to
fourteen years at the notorious Eastham prison farm.
When Clyde is paroled early, Bonnie thinks their life
is about to really begin. But Clyde has changed in prison.
Distant, damaged, and dogged by the cops, he knows itâ€™s only
a matter of time before the law tries to lock him up again.
Thatâ€™s not something he or Bonnie can bear. When heâ€™s fired
from his jobâ€”and now breaking paroleâ€”he decides to make a
run for it. Leave Texas. Get enough cash to make a fresh
start in a new state. And, of course, he wants his beloved
Bonnie to come with him.
Itâ€™s just one stolen car. One
robbed bank. Then, they can have the life they always
wanted. Or so they think, as they set out.
Unflinching and yet deeply empathetic, Jenni L.
Walshâ€™s Side by Side tells the story of America's
most iconic outlaws.
