"There are thirty-two ways to write a story, and I’ve used every one, but there is only one plot things are not as they seem."

 

Jim Thompson

NOTHING BUT A MAN.
  
It took me fifteen years, but I finally found a copy!
 

from the back cover:

Duff Anderson works hard on a railroad gang makes good money ($80 a week), and has learned to get along. But he wants more. He wants to be a man down South where, at best, he’s called boy. And he’ll settle for nothing less. This is the unforgettable story of Duff Anderson’s world and the people in it: his father, a hopeless alcoholic Josie, the well-educated girl who loves him; Josie’s minister father, an over-cautious Uncle Tom; and of Duff, himself, who wages his own personal battle as he seeks to become nothing less than a man.
