The first of Spunk's stories, "Sweat," tells of a young washer woman who is abused and betrayed by her estranged husband, and her ultimate triumph over him. The second story, "Story in Harlem Slang," is told in 1940's Harlemese. It is the tale of two street lotharios trying to out hustle each other. The third and final tale, "The Gilded Six Bits," is a bittersweet story of an adoring husband's betrayal by his loving but innocent wife.
