Naked on Roller Skates

A Jazz Age novel, with proletarian leanings, about an ill-fated love affair between an idealistic young woman from Connecticut and a rambling snake oil salesman who travel from to New York, where they open a coffee house, while "the wolves of the underworld and the hounds of Harlem [snarl] at the door" (from rear flap).

Lower board edges slightly rubbed, else Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. Jacket extremities very slightly worn, with light, even fading to the spine.

Hanna 377.
