Originally published: U.S. Viking, 1953; London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1954.

Augie March is a poor Chicago boy growing up during the Great Depression.

A 'born recruit', he latches on to a wild succession of occupations, then proudly rejects each one as too limiting.

Not until he tangles with the glamorous Thea, a huntress with a trained eagle, is his independence seriously threatened.

He goes on to recruit himself to even more outlandish projects, but always ducks out in time to continue improvising his unconventional career.

Augie March is the star performer in a richly observed human variety show, a modern-day Columbus in search of reality and fulfilment.
