'The Joyful Condemned takes us to Sydney in war-time, through the back alleys, around the exotic night-haunts, and across the underworld of the blacked-out but in many ways still flamboyant city. The Joyful Condemned are its characters, those cheerfully incorrigible juvenile delinquents who for from the streets and slums to the police courts and on to the reformatories, and who have learned to hold their own in a world of vice, treachery and murder.'
