Thieves’ Paradise

6 Apr, 2004

ejd6Dickey’s book Thieves’ Paradise is an interesting novel about  con artists looking for love and making ends meet—on the wrong side of the law. 

The thing about jail, you go in and you’re housed with criminals and you come out a criminal. You don’t get a B.A., you come out knowing more about crime. You see in movies and in real life, when you’re leaving jail, they say “we’ll see you again, son.” Once a criminal always a criminal.
