Why we love this
Tip On a Dead Jockey and Other Stories, by Irwin Shaw. New York: Random House, 1957. First printing. Ten short stories give a picture of the 1950s, both at home and abroad. Shaw was unusually interested in the effect European life-styles had, when they interacted with his typically hard-boiled American characters.
