The Old Bunch - Signed - Meyer Levin 1937 - The Viking Press, New York - First Edition A superb copy, signed by the author.

The Old Bunch chronicles the lives of nineteen Jewish men and women on Chicago's west, a sprawling yet intimate portrait of American life during the Great Depression, by an author the LA Times hailed as "the most significant American Jewish writer of his time”. Too young for World War I, they will later be too old for World War II. But they are not too young or too old for the Great Depression that begins to unravel their lives.
