Jeff Guinn: Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie & Clyde
Warren Beatty made an entertaining movie when he starred in Bonnie and Clyde, but he wasnt too concerned about telling the truth. On the other hand, when Jeff Guinn wrote Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie & Clyde, the truth was a priority. After months of research and poring over newly found documents, Guinn found that the real Bonnie and Clyde had very little in common with their mythical personas. The young lovers werent criminal masterminds; they stumbled more than planned their way through serious thefts and murders during a two-year crime spree. Then, according to Guinn, they willingly sacrificed their lives for a few brief moments of fame and a chance to be remembered. A former book editor for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Guinn wants to set the record straight. 6:30 p.m. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet.
