In his 80s Fuchs wrote: "I used to head on lengthy walks . . . absorb the road points of interest at evening. I freely used the attractions and happenings within the 3 novels I wrote in my 20s: Summer in Williamsburg (1934), Homage to Blenholt (1936), and Low Company (1937). . . . I had 'ideas' for every of those books, yet I quickly bored with them, rules being -- for me, at any price -- unsatisfactory. I deserted them . . . and committed myself just to the tenement: the lifestyles within the hallways, the commotion on the dumbwaiters, the collection of characters within the construction, their strivings and preoccupations, their problems within the interaction of the sexes. there has been regularly a ferment, slums or no slums. The slums did not carry them down."

Time hasn't held down those novels, both. Like Joseph Mitchell's ny sketches of a similar interval, they're as alive this present day because the day they have been first revealed, as tropical-rainforest lush, as exuberant. what is precise is still so, and Farrell spoke the reality again in 1937: there are nonetheless few novelists in the USA at the present time who own Fuchs's expertise, his power, his feel of life.
