O. Henry and National Book Award-winning author Nelson Algren has inspired thousands with his tough, gritty accounts of urban life. Written over the course of four decades, this collection of 12 stories centers around Depression-era Texas. Characterized by small-town strife, political corruption and frontier-style justice, each tale is a testament to the struggles of the working poor. Also among the stories is a retelling of the myth of Bonnie and Clyde.

    " Before he wrote the urban classics associated with him, such as MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM and WALK ON THE WILD SIDE, Algren spent some time as a vagrant in Depression-era Texas. Some interesting stories, including a good take on Bonnie and Clyde, who were much in the news in those days. "
