The Gunman, originally published as The Prone Gunman, is now a major motion picture starring Sean Penn. This is the official movie tie-in edition. The film, opening March 20th, 2015, also stars Javier Bardem, Idris Elba and Ray Winstone, and is directed by Pierre Morel (Taken).About The Gunman: Terrier is a hired killer who wants out of the game, so he can settle down and marry his childhood sweetheart. But the Organization won't let him go: they have other plans for him. In a violent tale that shatters as many illusions as bodies, Jean-Patrick Manchette subjects his characters and the reader alike to a fierce exercise in style. This tightly plotted, corrosive parody of &quote;the success story&quote; is widely considered to be Manchette's masterpiece, and was named a New York Times &quote;Notable Book&quote; in 2002. The Gunman is a classic of modern noir.Also available in its original edition titled The Prone Gunman, along with Manchette's Three to Kill, published by City Lights in 2002.&quote;There's not a superfluous word or overdone effect . . . one of the last cool, compact and shockingly original crime novels Manchette left as his legacy to modern noir fiction.&quote; New York Times&quote;This is lean, mean noir fiction that cleverly sends up the tough guy genre while incarnating it perfectly.&quote; Detroit Free Press&quote;Manchette is a master of both economy and irony. Brutal and bracing: Terrier's tale fascinates even as it chills.&quote; Kirkus ReviewsFor Manchette and the generation of writers who followed him, the crime novel is no mere entertainment, but a means to strip bare the failures of society, ripping through veils of appearance, deceit, and manipulation to the greed and violence that are the society's true engines.&quote; Boston Globe&quote;Jean-Patrick Manchette's terse prose moves like the swift, almost automatic methods and mannerisms of his protagonist.&quote; Wall Street Journal
