'Molly Brodak's account of growing up as the daughter of a multiple
felon bank robber is one of the most astonishing memoirs I've ever
read, an unflinching look into the meaning of family, morality,
forgiveness ... This is a rare one.' -- Blake Butler * VICE
'In Molly Brodak's dazzling memoir, Bandit, her eye is so honest, I found myself nodding like I was agreeing with her, sometimes cringing at what she sustained, and laughing - often. I can't wait to buy a copy for everyone I know.' * Kathryn Stockett, author of The Help *
