You Can't Win
|Series:||Tramp Lit Ser.|
You Can't Win is the beloved memoir written by criminal hobo Jack Black and first published in 1926 (Macmillan). It tells the story of one man's life during the final, dying days of America's Wild West. Black offers up thirty years' worth of personal tales of being an outlaw, cross-country stick-up man, home burglar, petty thief and opium fiend. Perfect for anyone who loves the idea of an outlaw life or who simply relishes in true grit Americana, You Can't Win combines memoir, how-to notes and philosophy into a tale of conscience, motivations, habit and the vagaries of chance.
