Bad Boy by Jim Thompson (Mysterious Press – 1988)

Mysterious Press, 2nd printing

This is the very stuff of life – raw and wine-soaked, rich, bawdy, savage. This is the story of master suspense writer Jim Thompson’s own life: carousing through hectic years, taking beatings and handing them out, blasting his way past ripening youth into the lusting teens and right on through to full, bursting manhood. This is a man’s life, twenty years ripped straight from the guts of wild experience – and this is the truth, as only a man like Jim Thompson could tell it.

A somewhat-embellished autobiographical sketch by Thompson.
