    Jesse James was a fabled outlaw, a charismatic, spiritual, larger-than-life bad man whose bloody exploits captured the imagination and admiration of a nation hungry for antiheroes.

    Born Henry McCarty, Billy the Kid was a diminutive, charming, blond-haired young man who, growing up in New York, Kansas, and later New Mexico, demonstrated a precocious dexterity at firing six-shooters with either hand - a skill that turned him into an American legend of the old West. He was smart, well spoken, attractive to both white and Mexican women, a good dancer, and a man with a nose for money, horses, and trouble. His spree of crimes and murders has been immortalized in dime Westerns, novels, and movies.

Ranging over subjects as diverse as Oscar Wilde, murder, dementia, and romance, this collection shows Ron Hansen at his storytelling best. Most of these pieces are set in the present with the balance set in the historical past. Surprising in its variety, She Loves Me Not shows Hansen at the height of his powers.
