Banjo: A Story Without a Plot
Harcourt, Brace, Jovanovich, 1970 - 326 pages
"Lincoln Agrippa Daily, known to his drifter cohorts on the 1920s Marseilles waterfront as "Banjo," passes his days panhandling and dreaming of starting his own little band. At night Banjo, Malty, Ginger, Dengel, Bugsy, Taloufa, Goosey, and even Jake of Home to Harlem prowl the rough waterfront bistros, drinking, looking for women, playing music, fighting, loving, and talking about their homes in Senegal, the West Indies, or the American South."--P.  of cover.
