With a Foreword by Director John Hillcoat Based on the true story of Matt Bondurant́ђةs grandfather and two granduncles, Lawless is a gripping tale of brotherhood, greed, and murder. The Bondurant Boys were a notorious gang of roughnecks and moonshiners who ran liquor through Franklin County, Virginia, during Prohibition and in the years after. When Sherwood Anderson, the journalist and author of Winesburg, Ohio, was covering a story there, he christened it the ́ђجwettest county in the world.́ђح Anderson finds himself driving along dusty red roads, piecing together the clues linking the brothers to ́ђجThe Great Franklin County Moonshine Conspiracy,́ђح and breaking open the silence that shrouds Franklin County. In vivid, muscular prose, Matt Bondurant brings these meńђؤtheir dark deeds, their long silences, their deep desireśђؤto life. His understanding of the passion, violence, and desperation at the center of this world is both heartbreaking and magnificent.
