Cultural Writing. HOBOHEMIA: EMMA GOLDMAN, LUCY PARSONS, BEN REITMAN & OTHER AGITATORS & OUTSIDERS IN 1920s/30s CHICAGO is a vivid account of a colorful, dynamic, creative and radical community of hoboes which flourished in Chicago from the 1910s through the Depression 30s. It chronicles Chicago's wild Near North Side: Bughouse Square, the nation's most renowned outdoor free-speech center. The Hobo College, the fabulous Dill Pickle Club are described, as well as the anarchists, Wobblies, feminists, poets, artists and others who frequented them. This reprint of the 1956 edition includes a new introduction by Franklin Rosemont
