A ballad of love by Frederic Prokosch( Book )
20 editions published between 1960 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 445 libraries worldwide
"A novel about solitude, about men wandering in the night of the absurd and feeling the 'nausea' of existence. It is a story of unrequited and tragic love, in which the characters roam from America to Europe and Africa in the years prior to and at the start of World War II ... While existentialist in mood, it is not a gloomy book. Prokosch throws a veil of subtle beauty over everything. It clothes New York, Paris, Venice and Tangiers in mystery, hides their squalor in compassion, assuages the solitude of men."--Jeanne Mercier

This is an engaging tale of a young man coming of age in the 1930s US Depression. Tom is a sheltered youth working on his uncle's Wisconsin farm when his uncle dies and he must return to his father's farm in Texas. Pete, one of the farm hands, suggests that they could get to Texas together on the $33 that Tom has. Tom and Pete join an army of out of work drifters crisscrossing the land, working at odd jobs for their meals and sleeping under the stars. Tom loses Pete along the way and falls in love with Lucy, a young runaway girl, only to lose her too. Written at the end of the Depression on the eve of the US entry into World War II, the novel portrays the devastating effects of the Depression on the US. All along the way Tom finds people down on their luck and without resources, pushed to the limits of their endurance. Prokosch hints at a new nation being born out of this painful period
