RUNAROUND

The lowdown on the small time political merry-go-round -- New York west side during the La Guardia campaign and administration -- the bottom of the depression -- the lack of security, making living a horror and sex and liquor anodynes. Not a pretty picture -- nor for delicate sensibilities -- perhaps more for masculine than feminine palates... Story of Danny who escapes clerkdom to give politics a try, gets in on the spoils, then with a turn of the wheel out again. Relentlessly, rawly realistic, revealing various angles of the political scene. Belongs to the ""hard-boiled school"".
