‘My publishers contacted me roughly five minutes before publication and requested one more short story, so I sat down and pondered writing a short murder mystery called “Death of a Publisher – by Slow Strangulation”.’
Mark Brandon ‘Chopper’ Read is Australia’s bestselling ex-convict. The standover man and self-confessed killer is Australia’s only celebrity gangster and has spent most of his adult life in jail. Shot, stabbed, betrayed and minus a pair of ears; Chopper’s tale of the Australian criminal underworld continues in PulpFaction.
The fifth volume of Chopper’s memoirs contains a series of short stories. These shorts are raw, tough and funny, with a breathtaking ring of authenticity that could only have been written by a man who has lived these experiences.
Featuring the classic stories ‘Revenge of the Rabbit Kisser’, ‘The Shoe Shop Men’ and ‘Message in a Bottle’, PulpFaction will have you wondering what’s true and what’s not.
Mark Brandon Read remains one of Australia’s most controversial public figures. An ex-convict, author and celebrity, he was also a recording and performance artist. He died after a long battle with liver cancer in 2013.
