“Aside from being the best title ever, this classic novella is impossible to put down. It has a lot to say and is actually very timely about financial problems and what it does to people. If you read this book, you could go back and see the film. Blast from the past!” Sinead

“Aside from being the best title ever, this classic novella is impossible to put down. It has a lot to say and is actually very timely about financial problems and what it does to people. If you read this book, you could go back and see the film. Blast from the past!” Sinead

The Great Depression led people to take desperate measures to survive. The marathon dance craze, which flourished at that time, seemed a simple way for people to earn extra money, dancing the hours away for cash, for weeks at a time. But the underside of that craze was a competition and violence unknown to most ballrooms.

A lurid tale of dancing and desperation, Horace McCoy’s classic American novel captures the dark side of the 1930s.
