CHOPPER

Completed

Chopper is Mark ‘Chopper’ Read, real-life convict and bestselling author of How to Shoot Friends and Influence People. His story is frightening, savagely funny and twisted. The son of a devoutly religious mother and one-time soldier with a fondness for sleeping alongside a loaded gun, Chopper dreams of making a name for himself as a legendary crime figure. He begins his journey as a wisecracking criminal failure inside a maximum-security prison, but he manages to twist his violent life into a story that fascinates and polarises both press and public.
