Fifth printing of the 1927 edition. Spine dulled, head repaired. Else good. No dust jacket. The distinctive design and illustrations by which this book is known, by Herman Ross. Great fun for anyone who wants to explore 'the beat' in Chicago in the 20's. At the age of 16, Hecht ran away to Chicago, where, in his own words, he "haunted streets, whorehouses, police stations, courtrooms, theater stages, jails, saloons, slums, madhouses, fires, murders, riots, banquet halls, and bookshops". In the 1910s and early 1920s, Hecht became a noted journalist, foreign correspondent, and literary figure. Ships from Dinkytown in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Due to the size/weight of this book extra charges may apply for international shipping.
