Burroughs, Edgar Rice: The Efficiency Expert. 04 Sep 2007
Jimmy Torrance graduated from college without a hope -- he'd spent his hours at the university learning how to box, how to swim, how to hit a baseball and lead a football team. He set out for Chicago with all the enthusiastic eagerness of a man who knows in his heart of hearts that he's on the winning team. But Chicago wasn't Ivy-league college football, and there was no team to captain: What Jimmy found in Chicago was a tough life in a tough place at a miserable wage. He found the decency of folks any ordinary fellow would have branded criminals, and he found the criminality of upstanding citizens who surrounded him. He found a whore with a heart of gold, and a safe-cracker who was also a man a body could rely on. And most important of all, in that freakish, frightful burg, Jimmy found a thing called love. . . .
PS: This is, by the way, the 1000th book we've created for the "Book Uploads" area here on MobileRead. An achievement we can all be proud of.
