This novella presents an insightful tale that has been told and passed down through Lord Toph’s family for decades. It is an unrecorded, yet intriguing account of John Dillinger’s brief moment spent at the Muldrow home in Little Rock Arkansas before his journey back to Chicago Illinois. This family legend offers a completely different outlook on how Dillinger was seen and known.
(Book Summary) John Herbert Dillinger was revered by his gangster counterparts and law-abiding citizens alike. Many referred to him as the “Modern-Day Robin Hood” for his compassionate disposition towards the common man. Despite his deep-set eyes and his dead-pan gaze, he was known to be quite the charmer among the ladies and admired for his charismatic presence.
“Dillinger Comes to Dinner” steps outside the realm of the unlawful life of Dillinger and offers a different outlook on the man as being simply a man in need during his brief respite. A compelling contrast is formed as Dillinger meets and befriends a colored man (Calvin Luther Muldrow) and his family in the South.
During this brief moment in time, an act of kindness without prejudice yields a connection between these two men from entirely different walks of life.
This endearing tale of this occurrence has been shared among the Muldrow-Anderson for years and is now being presented to resonate with many.
