In this novel, Ward examines the effects of the Depression, specifically through the lives of three main characters-- a girl, a boy and a rich elderly gentleman following [them] and the way their lives cross during the years from 1929 to 1934. Ward examines proletarian fiction that emerged at this time, Vertigo was Ward's political declaration of a dying capitalistic system. ' (Berona. p. 76).
