KIRKUS REVIEW

A fifty-year overview of the writing of Edward Dahlberg, including his first published work; Mimes, an unpublished immature novel dating from 1925; the three so-called proletarian novels of the title, written in the '30s; fragments and pieces from the Confessions (1971). Dahlberg's preface apologizes for his ""sundry moldy solecisms"" and bemoans our ""museless times."" Harold Billings' introduction compares him to Langland, Chaucer, Rabelais and Sir Thomas Browne.
