Re: RARA-AVIS: Re: Edward Bunker (was Point Blank, the movie)

That is sad news that Jim passed along.

However, I was wondering about something in the obit:

'He penned two books in prison, "Confessions of a Felon" followed by "No Beast So Fierce," which became the 1978 Dustin Hoffman starrer "Straight Time."'

Does Confessions of a Felon refer to his 2000 autobiography, Education of a Felon (what was the UK title, Confessions or Memoirs of Mr. Blue?)? Is that a (slightly) updated version of his first book? If so, was the earlier version ever published? Anyone know?

Oh, and didn't he co-write, not write, Runaway Train?
