Cato Wadel (Author)
This book is about the problems faced by able-bodied men who are forced to live off public welfare, or "on the dole." Based on the author's daily interactions with a hundred unemployed men in one Newfoundland village, this sensitive probe takes on a narrative form centered on one man and his family, and his struggle to maintain their self-esteem in the community. For, to be excused for being unemployed, a man must constantly show his desire to work.
