It is a searching autobiography, written in the 1940s but with the directness and power of today's most streetwise language. The book tells of Mezz Mezzrow's tough experiences in reform school, his paranoia when he realizes he's been dating a big hoodlum's girl, and the nights spent on the bandstand and the days spent living outside America's conservative norms.Hide synopsis
