A Walk On The Wild Side, Paperback / softback Book

Description

With an introduction by Richard FlanaganDove Findhorn is a naive country boy who busts out of Hicksville, Texas in pursuit of a better life in New Orleans.

Amongst the downtrodden prostitutes, bootleggers and hustlers of the old French Quarter, Dove finds only hopelessness, crime and despair.

His quest uncovers a harrowing grotesque of the American Dream. A Walk in the Wild Side is an angry, lonely, large-hearted and often funny masterpiece that has captured the imaginations of every generation since its first publication in 1956, and that rendered a world later immortalised in Lou Reed's classic song.
