Go Down Together

The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde

  • customer reviews
Bestselling author Jeff Guinn combines exhaustive research with surprising, newly discovered material to tell the real tale of two kids from a filthy Dallas slum who fell in love and then willingly traded their lives for a brief interlude of excitement and, more important, fame. Go Down Together has it all—true romance, rebellion against authority, bullets flying, cars crashing, and, in the end, a dramatic death at the hands of a celebrity lawman.

This is the real story of Bonnie and Clyde and their troubled times, delivered with cinematic sweep by a masterful storyteller.

Q. how did you come to write Go Down Together?

A. Though I didn't realize it for a long time, all my books are about the way our society shapes its versions of history based on what we want to believe rather than what really happened. My plan was to write a book titled Along the Tall Tale Trail about iconic American people and places and the myths we have actively, if sometimes subconsciously, built up about them. I planned to use Bonnie and Clyde as one chapter, but the more I learned about them, the more I realized they needed to be the focus on an entire book. They really were the first celebrities created by electronic media - in a sense, Brangelina and Brittney are their cultural heirs.
