Summary
"Set in St. Louis, A World to Win centers on two half brothers, Leo and Robert Hurley. Leo is an unlikely proletarian hero who acquires political consciousness in spite of himself; Robert is a victim of his own confused literary pretensions. As they grope toward reconciliation, they come into contact with bohemians and radicals who engaged in labor activism during the Popular Front era." "An important milepost in the development of worker-writing, A World to Win steers readers away from a sentimentalized concern for the poor to a more concrete contemplation of the social and political conditions that characterize their lives."--BOOK JACKET
