Most widely held works by Arthur D Casciato
Waiting for nothing by Tom Kromer( )

6 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 1,410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tom Kromer wrote one novel. This is it. It is an account of vagrant or hobo life during the nineteen-thirties. This work is a realistic account of life as a homeless man during the Great Depression. Straightforward, declarative sentences in the tough-guy argot of the time ("I admire that stiff. He has got the guts. He does not like parting with his dough") are characteristic of Kromer, as are spare descriptions of grim scenes ("When I look at these stiffs by the fire, I am looking at a graveyard. There is hardly room to move between the tombstones. ... The epitaphs are chiseled in sunken shadows on their cheeks"). The settings include rescue missions, flop houses, abandoned buildings and the sidewalk outside a nice restaurant. In one chapter, the narrator slowly comes to realize that the pitch-black boxcar he is riding in contains another rider, who is quietly, slowly, stalking him.--Wikipedia
