Literary diversions

Jim Tully, Aug. 13, 1922.

Tully was a self-taught writer who specialized in stories about boxers, the circus, hobos and similar themes. He’s fairly obscure today but was once quite well-known. He was the author of "Beggars of Life," "Blood on the Moon" and "Shanty Irish," among many other books.   

Note: If you are offended by the word "chink," you will not enjoy this story.
