Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Tom Kromer (1906-1969) was an American writer known for his one novel, Waiting for Nothing, an account of vagrant or hobo life during the nineteen-thirties. Dedicated "to Jolene, who turned off the gas," the work is a realistic account of life as a homeless man during the Great Depression. Straightforward, declarative sentences in the tough-guy argot of the time ("I admire that stiff. He has got the guts. He does not like parting with his dough") are characteristic of Kromer, as are spare descriptions of grim scenes ("When I look at these stiffs by the fire, I am looking at a graveyard. There is hardly room to move between the tombstones. . . . The epitaphs are chiseled in sunken shadows on their cheeks"). The settings include rescue missions, flop houses, abandoned buildings and the sidewalk outside a nice restaurant. In one chapter, the narrator slowly comes to realize that the pitch-black boxcar he is riding in contains another rider, who is quietly, slowly, stalking him. Внимание!
