I've Picked My Book for March

Checking my calendar for authors with March birthdays, yielded interesting names. But the one that really grabbed my attention was Budd Schulberg, March 27th, 1914.

I've seen "On The Waterfront", of course. And I'm really not interested in reading screen plays as part of this monthly reading mission.

But, somehow, I didn't know he had written novels as well. The most noteworthy being "What Makes Sammy Run?", 1941. So, that's the book I decided to read.

Interesting choice, Deborah.
You have to let us know how you like it.

jgk:

Is it possible that they made that book into a Broadway musical, in the 60's? I think I saw it. Anyway, it's ringing a major bell.
