Dog Eat Dog, Bunker's fourth novel, follows Troy Cameron, a reformatory graduate like Bunker. A terrifying and brutal narrative, the novel tracks his lawless spree in the company of two other reform school alumni, Diesel Carson and Mad Dog Cain. Dog Eat Dog is a novel of excruciating authenticity, with great moral and social resonance, and it could only have been written by Edward Bunker, who has been there.

Edward Bunker lives in Los Angeles with his wife. He is the author of three previous books, No Beast So Fierce, Animal Factory, and Little Boy Blue. He is also the coauthor of the movie Runaway Train. More recently he played Mr. Blue in the film Reservoir Dogs.

From Our Editors

Carved from a lifetime of experience that runs the gamut from incarceration to liberation, this "best novel about armed robbery ever written" (James Ellroy) tells the story of former convicts whose adaptation to civilian life under the new California "three strikes" law is done under their own terms

Editorial Reviews

"Mr. Bunker has written a raw, unromantic, naturalistic crime drama more lurid than anything the noiresque Chandlers or Hammetts ever dreamed up . . . Dog Eat Dog is an exciting, tightly constructed crime thriller with a fully realized cast of characters." -The New York Times"It's easy to see why Bunker has acquired such diverse admirers as Quentin Tarantino and William Styron . . . What distinguishes Byron from other crime writers is his ability to convey the compassion dormant within his violent criminals without resorting to excess luridness, sympathy, or moralism." -Publishers Weekly"Edward Bunker is among the tiny band of American prisoner writers whose work possesses integrity, craftsmanship, and moral passion . . . An artist with a unique and compelling voice." -William Styron
