298 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). Signed and dated by author on title page: "Earle Birney 22 Oct 1967 Toronto". "Readers who experienced the years of the great depression, in this country or elsewhere, will find their memories painfully and perhaps fruitfully stirred; younger readers will doubtless gain new understanding of the struggles, miseries and frustrations of those heartbreaking times that preceded the excitement and activity of war. Students of politics and the social scene should find much to interest them in the story of Communist, Trotskyist and other organizations that formed and operated in Canada during the long years of poverty, unemployment and unrest. Its blend of sympathy, irony and humour, and its frank discussions of so many questions which are close to us all earn for this compelling novel a rightful place beside the major novels of this decade."
