Greatest subversive hobo / criminal novel ever!From Feral House:
“More than—rare enough—a damned good book, it is a book of timeless, illuminating truth …This book is one of a kind.
— Nick Tosches
You Can’t Win, the beloved memoir of real lowdown Americana
by criminal hobo Jack Black, was first published in 1926, then reprinted
in 1988 by Adam Parfrey’s Amok Press, featuring an introduction by
William S. Burroughs.
After its Amok Press edition went out of print, You Can’t Win found popularity once again with the AK Press edition.
Feral House’s new version takes this classic American narrative much
further, including two remarkable nonfiction articles by Jack Black
written for Harper’s Magazine in the 1920s. Extraordinary
illustrations by Joe Coleman and new biographical revelations by Donald
Kennison round out the new edition.
