What was most remarkable to me when I first read Bunker, was that I knew he was an ex-convict, he looked a little scary, yet his writing was surprisingly literary for such an outwardly coarse man. Oh, his work is stark, two-fisted, and completely unapologetic for the realistic way crime and criminals are portrayed. Yet his writing is also elegant, like Cormac McCarthy with proper punctuation. Where did a guy who grew up in foster homes, the street, and in prison learn to write like that? One would think such a person would be hardly able to write at all, but his writing is there for anyone to see. He was a bit of a shock to me, Mr. Bunker was.

Of course if you're an ex-convict who writes, as I am, then Edward Bunker is The Man, the one to look up to. Because he's a guy who refused to surrender, a guy who made a writing career out of less than nothing. And wrote so well. Better maybe than anyone with his background had any right to.

Read Edward Bunker for, at first, the novelty if you will. Hey, this guy writes crime fiction, and he was in prison! Perhaps that will get you to your first book by him. What will get you to the second and subsequent books is the magnificent writing.
