About the Author:

Jack Conroy (1898-1990) was a Missouri-born writer who founded The Anvil, a Depression-era proletarian magazine famous for launching the careers of such writers as Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, and William Carlos Williams.

Douglas Wixson is Associate Professor of English at the University of Missouri-Rolla.  He edited The Weed King and Other Stories by Jack Conroy and is Jack Conroy's literary executor.

Review:

"In remarkably vivid prose the world of the working stiff jumps at you from the pages of The Disinherited, carrying with it the smell of burning chemicals, of cheap gin mills, of flop houses, the sound of rasping saws, the discomfort of cold winds off Lake Erie, the troubles of second-hand cars and of shoddy love affairs snatched at whenever one is not too tired from the daily grind."--New York Times
