Somebody in Boots

A novel by

From the rear cover; "Nelson Algren wrote 'Somebody in Boots', his first novel in 1935, after travelling through Depression America as a journalist and migrant worker. One of the first great 'dustbowl' novels, its powerful realism and passionate conviction found an echo four years later in Steinbeck's 'Grapes of Wrath'. Cass McKay, a man alienated from family and faith, illiterate and utterly displaced, leaves his poverty-stricken hometown in search of a living, riding the railroad from El Paso to Chicago, drifting from dosshouse to jail, from soup kitchen to hobo jungle. Alone in a world indifferent to his fate, McKay remains defiant in the face of adversity, his dignity intact."
