Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

Guys and Dolls and Other Stories
Damon Runyon


Slick, upbeat and funny, these stories inspired the popular musical and film Guys and Dolls. “Of all the high players this country ever sees, there is no doubt but that the guy they call the Sky is the highest.. He will bet all he has, and nobody can bet any more than this.”
