Publisher Description

Criminal, murderer, raconteur, author ...mythmaker? Mark Brandon 'Chopper' Read is undoubtedly Australia's best-known criminal. Author of many bestselling books about the underworld he inhabited, and subject of a smash-hit film, his story has become part of the country's culture. And Read certainly knew how to spin a yarn. Adam Shand - bestselling author of Big Shots- Carl Williams and the Gangland Murders - disentangles the persona of 'Chopper' from Mark Read, the man. Chopper took over Read's life, made him famous but then refused to let him go. With unparalleled access to lovers, friends and enemies, Shand learns that 'Uncle Chop Chop', was much more than the 'earless monster' he created.
