COVER ART BY HOOKS
The frank, realistic story of a teen-age gutter-scrapper, who learned all he knew about life in the sordid streets and tenements of New York's Lower East Side.
It is also the story of three girls - a downtown floozie, an uptown fancy girl, and one decent woman - for whom he slugged his way out of the slums and broke the deadly hold of the Syndicate that owned him, body and soul.
