“Bonnie and Clyde: The Lives Behind the Legend” by Paul Schneider is the best thing I’ve read this year — it puts truer faces on the duo than Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway’s, and while taking nothing away from the immortal, classic film, adds layer upon layer of intrigue....

Paul Schneider, 75 years after the couple was ripped to shreds by the bullets of the law, has stripped away the iconography, offering up a stunningly researched, immaculately constructed story of love, sex and sin, all in the words of Bonnie and Clyde and those who knew them, feared them, and had the misfortune of being caught in the cross-fire."
