On the Line

Author: Harvey Swados

Year Published: 1957

What Others are Saying:

  • Fascinating, though largely forgotten, novel by a Brooklyn-born author from midcentury that chronicles the lives of nine men on a Ford auto assembly line. Came out the same year as ON THE ROAD and tells the story of all the work that goes into the velocity and mental freedom that propels Kerouac's novel.
