RARA-AVIS: Conmen Grifters and Other Low-lifes

From: Jesse Willis ( jessewillis@yahoo.com)

I've been working on a webpage tentatively titled
"You're a Bad Pony" which examines conmen grifters and other lowlifes in popular fiction, the movies and reality.

I'm assembling lists and brief descriptions of films, books, incidents and a collection of scams. Anyone with a good suggestion drop me a line. Of course I've already got the majority of the recent stuff, but you never know what I may have missed.

Anyone interested in a preview send me an email off list.

My favorite con-novel: The Girl With The Long Green Heart by Lawrence Block

My Favorite con-movie: David Mamet's - House Of Games
