Originally published: Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, 1949; London: Spearman, 1959.
Merging a European literary sensibility with American naturalist social protest, Algren depicts America's third person society. A state where the lower classes are exploited and dehumanised, and where the sordid is no longer seen as shocking or abnormal.
