When Jack Rodenko shipped out as a sailor during World War II, he never imagined that real adventure would be waiting for him at home in New Orleans The Crescent City after the war is at the heart of a rapidly changing America, and ex-sailor Jack Rodenko is caught up in a strange and shifting milieu as he tends bar at a seedy club called La€™AŠtoile. While struggling to build a new life, Rodenko becomes involved with a corrupt, greedy power broker, and falls in love with a striking photographera€”relationships that will force him to choose between two decidedly different futures. First published decades after the authora€™s death in 1972, The Unknown Constellations is the first novel by unsung postwar literary hero Harvey Swados. Through these pages, we can trace the origins of a unique voice and an unerring conscience.... the literature of labor. He also penned various collections of nonfiction, including A Radicala#39;s America. Swadosa#39;s 1959 essay for Esquire, a€œWhy Resign from the Human Race?a€ is often credited with inspiring the formation of the Peace Corps.
