William Bonney, a.k.a. "Billy the Kid," killed his first man when he was twelve. By the time he was twenty-one he had, by his own reckoning, slain nineteen more. In the intervening years he had become "Billy the Kid," bloodthirsty ogre and outlaw saint. Drawing on contemporary accounts, period photographs, dime novels and his own fund of empathy and imagination, Michael Ondaatje traces Billy's passage across the blasted landscape of 1880 New Mexico and the collective unconscious of his country. The Collected Works of Billy the Kid is a virtuoso synthesis of storytelling, history, and myth.… (mere)

"blood a necklace on me all my life" ( )
  hms_ | Nov 22, 2022 |
Charlie knew he was already dead now, had to go somewhere, do something, to get his mind off the pain. Charlie went straight, now closer to them his hands covered the mess in his trousers. Shoot him Charlie shoot him. The blood trail he left straight as a knife cut. Getting there getting there. Charlie getting to the arroyo, pitching into Garrett's arms, slobbering his stomach on Garrett's gun belt. Hello Charlie, said Pat quietly.

The fascination with Billy the Kid is more fascinating than the man himself, really, but this is a very good example. I just wish more of it held up like the above quote. The time shifts work really well; the perspective shifts not so much. Also, there are some jarring anachronisms and inaccuracies. (Look, I never said I hadn't been one of the fascinated!) If it had stuck more with the pathos of the thing, I would have really loved this. Still, the poetry is very good. (The library is kicking me out but I'll come back and put a scrap in later.) And as ever, Pat Garrett is the most sympathetic person in any story about Billy the Kid, so it got that right. ( )

Vreemd boek. Je krijgt wel een indruk van het gemak waarmee mensen worden doodgeschoten en het leven van "helden" als Billy the Kid: dagen in het zadel, vrienden en vriendinnen bezoeken en veel drinken. Tja, en tenslotte wordt hij op z'n 21e doodgeschoten.

Interesting hybrid work of fiction, poetry, interview, etc. on the life of Billy the Kid. Refreshingly original and consistently engaging.

I read this book years ago, and it is definitely one I won't forget. I love the legend of Billy the Kid, so to see it told through prose and candor and photographs was really interesting.A great Canadian read. ( )

Der Mensch William Bonney, seine Zeit, seine Umgebung, die Menschen, die sein Leben kreuzten, die Umstände seiner fortwährenden Flucht, schließlich sein Ende - all das wirkt ungefilter und direkt, so dass das Buch zu einer Art chronistischer Collage geworden ist, was in diesem Fall wertvoller und intensiver ist als eine faktenreiche Biographie. Und dieses Buch ersetzt seine Verfilmung, da es bei der Lektüre Bilder im Kopf des Lesers evoziert - im Gegensatz zu dem Roman, der diese Bilder meist komplett mitliefert.
