Description
Based on the crimes and career of a real-life 18th-century gangland criminal, this 1734 novel by the author of Tom Jones is one of the finest satires in the English language. Against a backdrop of such colorful characters as the whore Miss Molly Straddle, the cardsharp Count La Ruse, and the base and weak Mr. Thomas Heartfree, the utterly ruthless Jonathan Wild's passage from cradle to gallows is recounted with the sparkling wit for which Henry Fielding is renowned. In the foreword, Peter Ackroyd recaps the career of the notorious Mr. Wild and his passage into literature.
