Never Come Morning by Nelson Algren

Book Description

Introduction by Kurt Vonnegut 'The best book to come out of Chicago' - Ernest Hemmingway '...depicts the intensity of feeling, the tawdry but potent dreams, the crude but forceful poetry, and the frustrated longing for human dignity residing in the lives of Poles of Chicago's Northwest Side, and the revelation informs us all that there lies an ocean of life at our doorstep - an unharnessed, unchanneled, and unknown ocean' - Richard Wright More than a million copies sold of this classic!

UK Kirkus Review » Growing up in the Northwest Side of Chicago before the Second World War, Nelson Algren watched everything around him, and in this second novel, first published in 1942, he creates a masterful picture of the underside of urban life, full of povery, hopelessness and crime. The story is set in the Polish community and centred around Bruno Bicek, a young boxer who is drawn into the vicious gang culture of the inner city. Sparsely written and often hauntingly beautiful, the story is littered with harrowing moments - when Algren describes in matter-of-fact prose the decapitation of a rabbit we begin to get a feel for how little life meant in some quarters, and Bruno's inevitable downfall inspires as much sympathy as horror. This is a painful but deeply moving classic that draws the reader deep into the damaged lives of its characters. (Kirkus UK)
