Never Come Morning An unusual book and a brilliant book The New York Times One of the finest works of American literature that I have read James T Farrell A knockout Saturday Review of Literature Never Come Morning 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 the Poles of Chicago s Northwest Side, and this revelation informs us all that there lies an ocean of life at our doorstep an unharnessed, unchanneled and unknown ocean Richard Wright Utter sincerity and psychological truth Philip Rahv in The NationMr Algren is out to shock, but he does so without seeming to sensationalize I, for one, found myself believing Clinton Fadiman in The New YorkerThe girls sitting around the juke box in Mama Tomek s, the boys playing under the El, the look of Chicago streets in the rain It is the poetry of familiar things that is missing in the other Chicago novels Algren is a poet the Chicago slums. Malcolm Cowley A book, a true book, is the writer s confessional For, whether he would have it so or not, he is betrayed, directly or indirectly, by his characters, into presenting, publicly, his innermost feelings.

  1. Edited update 5 8 18I am so glad I finally read the classic Chicago novel by once famous Chicago realist writer Algren, who once was touted by fellow Chicago writer Ernest Hemingway as one of the two best Chicago writers ever This is technically as I learned, not from my own reading his second novel, the first being a book influenced by his connections with John Reed, Marxist ideology, and Communism, and the book I am told reads like a ...

  2. A gritty look at the underside of mid 2oth century Chicago Algren was a talented writer.

  3. My favorite book ever written about Chicago Maybe the most brutal book ever read either.

  5. I loved this book I have no idea why Algren isn t as famous as Hemingway His prose is as heartbreakingly gorgeous and well constructed.

  6. I am still processing the ending, as I just finished it four minutes ago, but I think I was fairly pleased with the novel I will writeabout it after I have time to reflect , but it ended perfectly.Edit After months, perhaps I can express my opinions on this novel Basically, if you are looking for a beautiful story about Polish American s living in Chicago that makes the reader feel optimistic about society, do not read this book If you want a gritty, realistic, noir like compendium I am still processing the ending, as I just finished it four minutes ago, but I think I was fairly pleased with the novel I will writeabout it after I have time to reflect , but it ended perfectly.Edit After months, perhaps I can express my opinions on this novel Basically, if you are looking for a beautiful story about Polish American s living in Chicago that makes the reader feel optimistic about society, do not read this book If you want a grit...

  7. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here At one point late in the book, through a bloody tooth spitting haze, shortly before the police take him away for murder, which means he won t be able to rescue his girl who he turned into a prostitute, our main character sees CHICAGO in bold letters on the back of someone ...

  8. Poor Lefty made all the wrong decisions in life This is a stark view of what life might have been like for a Polish immigrant in the late 30s I d classify it as a tragedy, but an interesting historically based story.

  9. writing shows a true, unadorned understanding of the subject and the lives and society he is depicting Nothing Didactic about it, unsettling and grim, but that s how it is, its not written for a calculated shock that s key.

  10. Incredible book Bicek s life in Chicago as a down and out boxer was really inspiring to me I want to reread it I read this when I was in high school.
