"The Book Shelf,"  Lancaster New Era

March 15, 1935, p. 13

WAITING FOR NOTHING, By Tom Kromer. Knopf.
This is the book of a young man who for years wandered from town to town, and from State to State, looking for work, listening on the way to those like him. It’s tragic moving, factual, and not bitter book about the men who roam the highways without money, without work, and without much hope. It makes one feel guilty if his worldly wealth runs to as much as an extra pair of socks and a reasonable certainty about breakfast; thrice guilty if he drives an automobile. I wish it might be read by a few people I know who think they are undergoing adversity.
