[foxing to top edge, otherwise a solid clean copy with no significant wear; jacket shows minimal wear at extremities]. (B&W photographs) "This collection of 37 pieces brings back the world of Conroy's fiction as well as the literary world in which he grew up and to which he still contributes. The great Chicago writers of the Depression are here as well as the whole school of American proletarian literature. Unique for its perspectives on the progress, or lack of it, of American society since the thirties, the book offers a first-hand look at what we were less than half a century ago." Includes photographs by John Vachon, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, Arthur Rothstein, Ben Shahn.
