“The first time I robbed a bank, I understood that I was amping up my game. … Here I am a petty criminal and I wanna innovate with my narrative, amp it up and become a serious criminal. So I’m like f–k it, I’m gonna go rob a bank. I had already committed to the idea that I was a new man, new life, f–k the world – this is the new Joe Loya. I’m gonna rob a bank.”
Joe Loya used to be a bankrobber. Now he’s a writer. Grab his astonishing memoir, “The Man Who Outgrew His Prison Cell” from Amazon.
