Rogues: True Stories of Grifters, Killers, Rebels and Crooks | Patrick Radden Keefe
From the prize-winning, New York Times bestselling author of Say Nothing and Empire of Pain, twelve enthralling stories of misbehavior and skullduggery by one of the most decorated journalists of our time. "I read everything he writes. Every time he writes a book, I read it. Every time he writes an article, I read it. . . . He's a national treasure." --Rachel Maddow, host of MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Blowout Patrick Radden Keefe has garnered prizes ranging from National Magazine Awards to the Orwell Prize for Political Writing to the National Book Critics Circle Award for his meticulously-reported, hypnotically-engaging work on the many ways people behave badly. In this collection, Keefe brilliantly chronicles the surprisingly corporate business practices of narcotraffickers, explores the intricacies of forging $150,000 vintage wines, tells the fate of a whistle-blower who dared to expose money laundering at a Swiss bank, and profiles the charmed life of a cheerful international black market arms merchant, among other bravura works of literary journalism. The appearance of his byline in The New Yorker is always an event, and collected here for the first time readers can see his work forms an always enthralling but deeply human portrait of criminals and rascals, but also those who stand up against them.

Third time I have checked out from my local library, should probably buy the book as I like delving in from time to time reading about grifters, killers, rebels, and crooks. The story on Anthony Bourdain is almost worth the price alone, and I have learned to despise Mark Burnett. So many great stories and interviews. Patrick Radden Keefe is an author to read.

💚PRK! Glad I finally got around to reading this one (I bought it right when it came out, months ago). Some of the pieces in this collection (all originally published in The New Yorker) grabbed me more than others, but all are examples of outstanding journalism. The Amy Bishop story, A Loaded Gun, was the stand-out for me.

Prairiegirl_reading I will read anything he writes! 3w

Listened to this one while working today - this chapter *felt* out of place despite the word ‘killers‘ being in the list on front. I think I just don‘t associate the word ‘rogue‘ with a workplace murder, but maybe that‘s a me problem.

A collection of his New Yorker articles. I‘m a fan of Say Nothing and Empire of Pain, and these stories have the in depth investigation and humanizing, engaging storytelling that those books do. If you like long form pieces about criminals and scammers, check this book out. Then read his books!

CatMS "Say Nothing" was outstanding so far my favorite of the authors books. "Empire of Pain" also outstanding and was dense with research. 7d
Kat.Kao @CatMS I love how well researched his books are! And the storytelling is so compelling. 7d

Audiobook. This is a series of articles published in the New Yorker by Keefe. They were all new to me, some were more interesting than others. I knew nothing about El Chapo, so that was one of my favorites. Recommend if you like a variety of subjects.

I'm a big PRK fan. LOVED Say Nothing and Empire of Pain. For me this was a so-so read, not because the long-form journalism pieces weren't well-written, but because I'd already read a number of them in the New Yorker. But also, some of them were written as timely pieces at one point in time, and a lot of water has flowed under the bridge. The pieces on Trump and Anthony Bourdain in particular felt very dated.

SamAnne The chapter I found most fascinating was a look at the underbelly of the wine world, focused on a shuckster wine connoisseur passing off fake bottles of wine supposedly once owned by Thomas Jefferson and found in a wall in Paris. 3mo
Scochrane26 I was listening to this one, had to return to the library but got it back quickly. I‘m about halfway, so far, I liked the El Chapo chapter because I knew nothing about him. The wine story was good, too. 3mo
SamAnne @Scochrane26 I liked that one too—I‘d read it before. It was timely since they just captured El Chapo‘s son in Mexico. 3mo

This was an absorbing collection of long-form articles written by the author. I don‘t really read detailed pieces like these anymore. Most of the subjects were really interesting characters. I struggled a bit with the ones about financial fraud and an arms dealer. 4/5

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was great—loved the more bite-sized essay format. Keefe is a fantastic writer and long form journalist. A couple of the essays slugged a bit, or maybe I just wasn‘t that interested in the topic, but I devoured most of them.

There aren‘t many writers of nonfiction whose books are automatically added to my TBR but Patrick Radden Keefe definitely tops that list. This collection of previously released articles was great on audio. I was barely finished with the first one before I was recommending this to all of the audiobook lovers I know.

Each essay was more enthralling than the last! I couldn‘t wait to pick up this book each time I put it down. Keefe has a way of making fact more awful, more beautiful, and more interesting than fiction. After hearing he narrated the audiobook, I‘m tempted to go for round 2.

(A view last night from the home I lived in for 20+ years before my divorce. I‘m housesitting which is an odd concept but…) I listened to this, read by Keefe, and it was terrific. Long essays written for The New Yorker of some shysters, grifters, and killers. One essay was about a murder that tied back to a story of the killer‘s childhood, all of which took place in the town I grew up in. Keefe is an automatic read for me.

BarbaraBB That pic! Book sounds good too but I wonder if it might be too American (read: unknown author/subject/stories) for me 7mo
Suet624 @BarbaraBB That's an interesting question. The Goodreads synopsis would give you an idea of some of the topics. Also if you've read Say Nothing or Empire of Pain written by Keefe you'll notice how he weaves technical detail amidst the subject's personal life and makes it very readable. If you've never read anything by Keefe I'd suggest Say Nothing. 7mo
Suet624 @Leftcoastzen Isn't it? Every day it's a different look. 7mo
Suet624 I also meant to add that I so appreciate The New Yorker for publishing and supporting Ronan Farrow and Patrick Radden Keefe's work. 7mo

Megabooks What a pretty view and how hard it must‘ve been to have to give it up. Rogues was a great book. 7mo
Suet624 @Megabooks You might know how this feels... at the end I couldn't see any of the beauty of the place at all. I was pretty miserable. I have many friends living there still and I get to housesit at a lot of the houses or visit friends so I still have access to the place. And, oddly enough, my ex and I are pretty friendly now so I get invited to dinner often :) Life is weird. 7mo
Megabooks I understand what you‘re saying. One place I lived in my 30s was very beautiful, but by the end, I was so frustrated and downtrodden that I was happy to leave. I‘m glad it sounds like you‘re at peace with your situation, though. 💜 7mo

115/150 I don't know what I can add to all the other positive reviews on Litsy. It is a fascinating collections of essays, about some bad people, anti-heroes and rebels (as the cover says). Finishing with Anthony Bourdain was the highlight, but also very sad knowing his fate. 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Every essay is brilliantly crafted - taking complicated politics, relationships, allegiance and circumstance and crafting the narrative like a closely wound story. He‘s a genius at his craft! Some pieces I enjoyed more than others of course - but all were rich, deeply researched and full of humanity. There‘s one I can‘t stop telling everyone about and might make it my Mastermind specialist subject!

Every chapter contained an in-depth look at bad guys (Anthony Bourdain excepted). My fave was the chapter about producer Mark Burnett, the man who truly made Donald Trump. Dang was that enlightening (& a lot scary). One chapter uncovered the true culprits in the Lockerbie bombing, much of the sleuthing taking place in #Libya. In another we learn how the most abundant natural resource (iron) in #Guinea was swindled into an outsider‘s hands. ⬇️

Texreader Some of the chapters were enthralling. One or two just lost me, which I think was a factor of listening rather than reading the book when names sounded so much alike, but also some topics were less than exciting. Still, brilliantly done overall. #readingafrica2022 @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB (edited) 7mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Keefe is a master of narrative nonfiction! There are few things I enjoy more, honestly. This collection of #TheNewYorker articles is thoughtful and respectful even when perhaps the subject matter doesn‘t deserve such grace, though some surely do. There‘s fraud, corruption, and many stories that toe the line of illicit and legit. Unsurprisingly, the Anthony Bourdain essay was my favorite. The death row attorney, a close second. Riveting!

An interesting collection of essays about wine forgers, arms dealers, Anthony Bourdain, Mark Burnett, and Judy Clarke. Simultaneously, I felt like my life is really bland and completely absorbed in the craziness of pretending to buy arms from an international arms broker. Some essays are fantastic, some are ok, all told with enough humanity that made them so intriguing.

Okay. So. I really enjoyed this author, he may be my current favorite non-fiction author at the moment.
Like most all short collections I found that some stories were incredibly interesting and I wanted so much more about them I was googling and looking for photos and things. And then others I just wanted them to be over almost before they began because I was not interested.
Overall I liked most of the stories but I did skip through a few

Oh this is good! Keefe is a great nonfiction writer and these collected stories from the New Yorker vary greatly but are all interesting. From El Chapo to Anthony Bourdain, each piece is thoroughly realized but not overly long. I learned so much more of the story behind big headlines. The man who “made” Trump, Mark Burnett has his own feature. I didn‘t even know who he was prior to this book. He created the show The Apprentice 😑

JuniperWilde I heard him interviewed on CBC last week and I‘ve read a few of his NY articles. Sounds like a captivating read. 9mo

Longform journalism is where it‘s at, and I loved this collection of Keefe‘s articles from the New Yorker!

I had a great side email with @BarbaraBB after reading his piece on Dutch organized crime. He covered controversial figures like Mark Burnett, the creator of The Apprentice, and his support of 45. There was a heartbreaking piece about a lawyer trying to protect clients from the death penalty. And it ends with his profile of Bourdain. ⬇️

Megabooks There is a piece on the democratically elected President of #Gambia, who has since been deposed in a coup, and mining rights to the country. #ReadingAfrica2022 @BarbaraBB @Librarybelle 9mo
