Notes

First edition first printing, signed by the author on the front free endpaper. A Walk on the Wild Side is a classic down-and-out novel, and the source for Algren's three rules of life: "Never play cards with a man called Doc. Never eat at a place called Mom's. Never sleep with a woman whose troubles are worse than your own."
