Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You Cant Win, the beloved memoir of real lowdown Americana by criminal hobo Jack Black, was first published in 1926, then reprinted in 1988 by Adam Parfreys Amok Press, featuring an introduction by William S. Burroughs.

After its Amok Press edition went out of print, You Cant Win found popularity once again with the AK Press edition.

Feral Houses new version will take this classic American narrative a lot further, including two remarkable nonfiction articles by Jack Black written for Harper's Magazine in the 1920s. Remarkable illustrations by Joe Coleman and new biographical revelations by Donald Kennison will round out the new edition.

A full-length feature film of You Cant Win starring Boardwalk Empires Michael Pitt is expected to be released in spring 2013.

Synopsis:

This underground sensation, with heretofore unpublished material by the author, will be released as a movie in 2013.
