9780141015798: A Few Kind Words and a Loaded Gun: The Autobiography of a Career Criminal

A Few Kind Words and a Loaded Gun is the autobiography of convicted felon Noel 'Razor' Smith. An extraordinarily vivid account of how a tearaway kid from South London became a career criminal, it is both a searing indictment of a system that determinedly brutalized young offenders and a frank, unsentimental acknowledgement of the thrills of the criminal life. Shocking, fascinating and frightening by turns, it also reveals Razor Smith to be a remarkably talented writer.

Review:

""This is not another lame true crime book written by someone who has spent their life in an office. Razor Smith is the real thing: someone who has lived the life and lived to write about it. A Few Kind Words "is a stunning book, filled with brutality, horror, and truth. It might be the best crime memoir ever written by an actual criminal." --James Frey, author, A Million Little Pieces
