Frankie Machine reckons he s a tough guy in the Chicago underworld dealing cards in a backstreet gambling den and hustling two bit scams to pay for a heroin addiction he wants to kick but can t He convinces himself that playing the tubs is the only way out of he poverty and addiction that is consuming him br Around him revolve the lives of Sophie his crippled nagging wife Molly the saloon bar stripper who loves him and tries to keep him free from the cops and his drug habit Nifty Louie Frankie s neighbourhood dealer and Sparrow the punk unreformable petty theif and Frankie s closest friend br With consummate skill Algren lays bare the tragedy and humour of Frankie s world the people on both sides of the law who are trapped in poverty frustration and despair Algren s sympathetic portrait of people living in the Chicago slums is one of the classics of modern literature and was the first ever winner of the National Book Award, Larry McMurty once wrote that Nelson Algren held the best literary claim to he Rio Grande Valley of Texas though few people realise that i the poet of the Chicago slums i ever lived or wrote here Yet it was in Depression era Texas that Algren developed his instinctive need to speak for the powerless a need that made him one of the foremost chroniclers of the American outcast The Texas that Algren understood was a world where impoverished people lived among simmering yet casual violence a world where the law racist abusive and corrupt ruled with an utter ruthlessness and power br br i The Texas Stories i vividly re creates this now vanished world The collection includes i So Help Me i winner of a O Henry Award i The Last Carousel i which won the i Playboy i Fiction Award and the early i Thundermug i a piece that was censored when it appeared in the radical i Windsor Quarterly i in Here too is Algren s unique retelling of the legend of Bonnie and Clyde Including work from more than four decades i The Texas Stories i provides a much needed overview of Algren s artistic development It will enthusiastically be welcomed by Algren fans Texans literary scholars Western historians and many others br br Nelson Algren was the author of eleven books including i Never Come Morning The Neon Wilderness A Walk on the Wild Side i and i The Man with the Golden Arm i which won the first National Book Award for Fiction in br br Bettina Drew is the author of the critically acclaimed biography i Nelson Algren A Life on the Wild Side i, The struggle to write with deep emotion is the subject of this extraordinary book the previously unpublished credo of one of America s greatest th century writers br You don t write a novel out of sheer pity any more than you blow a safe out of a vague longing to be rich writes Nelson Algren in his only longer work of nonfiction adding A certain ruthlessness and a sense of alienation from society is as essential to creative writing as it is to armed robbery br Nonconformity is about th century America Never on the earth of man has he lived so tidily as here amidst such psychological disorder And it is about the trouble writers ask for when they try to describe America Our myths are so many our vision so dim our self deception so deep and our smugness so gross that scarcely any way now remains of reporting the American Century except from behind the billboards where there are still defeats in which everything is lost and victories that fall close enough to the heart to afford living hope br In Nonconformity Algren identifies the essential nature of the writer s relation to society drawing examples from Dostoyevsky Chekhov Twain and Fitzgerald as well as utility infielder Leo Durocher and legendary barkeep Martin Dooley He shares his deepest beliefs about the state of literature and its role in society along the way painting a chilling portrait of the early s Joe McCarthy s heyday when many American writers were blacklisted and ruined for saying similar things to what Algren is saying here, The Devil s Stocking is the story of Ruby Calhoun a boxer accused of murder in a shadowy world of low purse fighters cops con artists and bar girls Chronicling a battle for truth and human dignity which gives way to a larger story of life and death decisions literary grandmaster Nelson Algren s last novel is a fitting capstone to a long and brilliant career
