Cry Tough—underworld life as it is—not glamourized or stereotyped, but the vicious thing that preys upon the weak...

After being released from the Elmira reformatory Mitch (the central character of Cry Tough) has two ways to go. He could return to his family who loved him dearly, find a job and marry the girl who loved him. His other choice is the flashy, dangerous life as a hood with big risks and big rewards—cars, women, rich food and fancy apartments. Would he settle for the security of a job and family or would he take the road from which there was no turning back?

In a classic story, Irving Shulman presents the struggle of one man. The allure of his life in the underworld, the sobering reality of his home life, what he really loves, what he really wants and how each element in his fragmented reality draws on him.
