Grosset & Dunlap, 1981. Hardcover. Used - Very Good. Item #300072
Frank Abagnale wrote $2.5 million in bad checks, practiced law without a license, practiced medicine with no medical training, co-piloted a Pan Am jet with a fake license, taught at a college though he was actually a high-school dropout, and managed to outwit and outrage the police of 26 foreign countries and all 50 states. Catch Me if You Can is the hilarious, now-classic story of Abagnale's stranger-than-fiction international escapades, and his ingenious escapes -- including one from an airplane.Slated for 2000 production at Dream Works Entertainment, and now updated with a new afterword, Catch Me if You Can contains all of the elements of the most wildly imaginative fiction, except that all of Abagnale's exploits actually happened. Stylish, charming, and not one to skimp on luxury, Abagnale lived a sumptuous life on the lam from which he retired when he was 21. Now recognized as the nation's leading authority on financial foul play, Abagnale tells the ultimate true-crime story, from the point of view of one of history's most lovable rogues.
