They Shoot Horses, Don't They? Paperback
by Horace McCoy
Part of the Serpent's Tail Classics series
The Depression of the 1930s led people to desperate measures to survive.
The marathon dance craze, which flourished at that time seemed a simple way for people to earn extra money dancing the hours away for cash, for weeks at a time.
But the underside of that craze was filled with a competition and violence unknown to most ballrooms.
A lurid tale of dancing and desperation: Horace McCoy's classic American novel captures the dark side of the 1930s.
