Ballad of the Whiskey Robber by Julian Rubinstein

Brendan’s Alternate Tagline: Hahahahahahahahaha.

Quick synopsis: The story of Attila Ambrus.

Fun Fact Non-History People Will Like: See below.

Fun Fact for History Nerds: Keep going.

My Take: I don’t believe in trying to improve on perfection. In that spirit, here is the synopsis for this book:

“A true story of bank heists, ice hockey, Transylvanian pelt smuggling, moonlighting detectives, and broken hearts.”

None on that is made up or embellished. This is the funniest book I’ve read in a long time. And it is all true.

Verdict: Why aren’t you reading it yet?

  • Ben Macintyre, Agent Zigzag

  • John Carryrou, Bad Blood
  • Sheri Fink, Five Days at Memorial
