Really interesting novel?/memoir? set in 1890s-1920s America, where a young man who has lost his fortune comes to make a name for himself, and ends up mixed up in scams, a book salesman, a hobo and a labourer. Fascinating, if on the long side, and the afterword then casts doubt on the veracity of the whole thing.

Very enjoyable but glad I’ve finally got through it after a good few days of fairly solid reading!
