This is a bleak tale about something I didn't know ever existed. Dance marathons where dirt poor people dance for weeks or months trying to win enough money to keep their meager lives going during the Great Depression. All of this done to attract the folks who still have money to watch them risk their health and lives to keep going. To keep the crowds coming, the organizers come up with new and more humiliating ways to attract the crowds, anything from dance derbies, where they have to dance as fast as they can for as many laps as they can will their nearly broken bodies around, to having one team get married live on the dance floor. We know from the beginning that our main character has murdered his partner, Gloria, and the book tells of the dance marathon leading up to that killing. This is a great book for fans of noir, a story of hopeless darkness where even a small bit of sunlight is to be treasured.
