Read full description of the books The Rise and Fall of the Dil Pickle:Cultural Writing. Founded in 1914 by former Wobbly Jack Jones, Irish revolutionist Jim Larkin, and a group of IWW-oriented Bughouse Square hobos and soapboxers, the Dil Pickle in just a few years was widely recognized as the wildest, most playful, most creative, and most radical nightspot in the known universe--especially after Dr. Ben Reitman (Emma Goldman's former lover and press agent) joined the club in 1917. In this book--the first ever devoted to one of this country's most colorful and best-loved counter-institutions--Franklin Rosemont has collected forty-one reminiscences of the Dil Pickle by poets, artists, journalists, novelists, hobos, scholars, anarchists, wobblies, and other assorted radicals and oddballs.
