Author Info
Richard Stark
Donald E. Westlake served in the U.S. Army and worked at a literary agency before beginning his writing career. Though he started as a writer's apprentice, churning out soft-core sex novels in the early '50s, Westlake went on to become a highly successful and diverse writer. He published his first novel, "The Mercenaries", in 1960, marking a string of dark crime novels that would characterize the early part of his career. From these beginnings, Westlake began to infuse a greater degree of humor into his novels, until he became primarily known for his comic crime capers. To his surprise, his novels "kept coming out funny," causing him to switch almost exclusively to plots like that of his 1975 novel "Two Much", which tells the story of a man pretending to be twins so that he can marry a set of twin heiresses. Westlake has also written under numerous pseudonyms, the most famous being Richard Stark, the name under which he wrote a series of grim mysteries featuring the professional thief Parker.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Darwyn Cooke's first two Parker books, The Hunter and The Outfit, are collected in a tremendous, special, oversized hardcover edition - with an additional 65-pages of Darwyn Cooke content and a brand-new story - encased in a beautiful slipcase! Richard Stark's Parker: The Hunter graphic novel debuted in July 2008 to instantaneous popular and critical acclaim. It made the New York Times bestseller list and won coveted Eisner and Harvey awards. The second graphic novel, The Outfit, was released last year and was met with similar response, and is currently under consideration for nominations in this year's awards season. The Hunter and The Outfit tell the story of Parker, Richard Stark's classic anti-hero, as he returns to New York to settle the score with his wife and partner in crime after they betray him in a heist gone terribly wrong. After evening the field and reclaiming his prize, the Outfit decide to do some score settling of their own... and learn much too late that when you push a man like Parker, it had better be all the way to the grave.
