              Chicago: City on the Make: Sixtieth Anniversary Edition (Trade Paperback / Paperback, annotated edition)

              By Algren, Nelson; Introduction by Terkel, Studs; Notes by Schmittgens, David; Introduction by Savage, Bill

              Once you've become a part of this particular patch, you'll never love another. Like loving a woman with a broken nose, you may well find lovelier lovelies. But never a lovely so real. Ernest Hemingway once said of Nelson Algren's writing that you should not read it if you cannot ...take a punch. The prose poem, Chicago: City on the Make, filled with language that swings and jabs and stuns, lives up to those words. In this sixtieth anniversary edition, Algren presents 120 years of Chicago history through the lens of its nobodies nobody knows : the tramps, hustlers, aging bar fighters, freed death-row inmates, and anonymous working stiffs who prowl its streets. Upon its original publication in 1951, Algren's Chicago: City on the Make was scorned by the Chicago Chamber of Commerce and local journalists for its gritty portrayal of the city and its people, one that boldly defied City Hall's business and tourism initiatives. Yet the book captures the essential dilemma of Chicago: the dynamic tension between the city's breathtaking beauty and its utter brutality, its boundless human energy and its stifling greed and violence. The sixtieth anniversary edition features historic Chicago photos and annotations on everything from defunct slang to Chicagoans, famous and obscure, to what the Black Sox scandal was and why it mattered. More accessible than ever, this is, as Studs Terkel says, the best book about Chicago. This short, crisp, fighting creed is both a social document and a love poem, a script in which a lover explains his city's recurring ruthlessness and latent power; in which an artist recognizes that these are portents not of death, but of life. -- New York Herald Tribune In this slender classic, Algren tells us all we need to know about passion, heaven, hell and a city. --Studs Terkel
