Jack Conroy (1899 - 1990), leftist American "worker-writer" best known for his contributions to “proletarian literature,” [aka "Prol Lit"}, fiction and nonfiction about workers during the early decades of the 20th century.
Conroy wrote THE DISINHERITED initially as nonfiction, but editors insisted he fictionalize the story for better reception. The novel explores the 1920s and 30s worker struggles and their poverty due to Depression layoffs through the eyes of Larry Donovan.
