The Autobiography of a Supertramp | [W.H. Davies]

The Autobiography of a Supertramp

At the end of the 19th Century W.H.Davies hustled his way across America, working when he could, begging and stealing when he couldn't. He saw life on the breadline. He was beaten up in New Orleans, thrown into prison in Michigan and was present at lynching’s in Tennessee, truly a diarist of the nether side of the American dream. After travelling with some of the most interesting and adventurous characters, an accident forced him to return to a similar poverty filled world back in England.

    "couldn't finish it"

    Kudos to the author for writing a character so believable that he pissed me off. The protagonist and his surroundings were created so well that I could find nothing redeemable about the main character. A selfish drunken thief, a lazy social parasite, refusing to better himself in the least. I used to think that this segment of the historical population were just down on their luck but they were only stealing ours.
