The book

"Massimo Carlotto has a history as riveting as any novel." —Chicago Tribune

After serving years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit, Massimo Carlotto received a presidential pardon in 1993. The first book he wrote as a free man was The Fugitive telling of his years on the run from a politically motivated murder charge. This gritty tale takes readers from the French underworld to a Mexico besieged by guerilla warfare. Virtually a handbook on how to live life on the lamb, The Fugitive is also a vibrant novel full of vivid underworld characters and breathtaking moments that Carlotto recounts in the cool, lucid prose that has become his trademark.
