In a lean, fast-paced style that caused him to be compared to Ernest Hemingway, Edward Anderson reveals an astonishing panorama of rattling freight trains, breadlines, hobo jungles, Hoover hotels, and bloody political demonstrations. Rootless, dispirited, and responsible to no one, Andersons hungry men—like todays homeless—symbolized the failure of all that the dominant culture held dear.
