(From the publisher):
Footloose is a gripping first person narrative of a teenage boy who recounts his experiences growing up in postwar Austria. He leaves school for the excitement of earning money as an apprentice. The grueling monotony of his work and the harsh treatment by his superiors, however, soon lead him to other less noble pursuits. The boy's painful search for individuality, freedom and meaningful employment contain striking parallels to the contemporary American scene.
