Praise

“A legendary figure. . . . Mitchell’s reportage is so vivid, so real, that it comes out like fiction of the highest order.”
Chicago Sun-Times

“A poetry of the actual, a song of the streets that casts a wide net and fearslessly embraces everything human. . . . This is reporting transformed into literature, news that stays news. . . . His work is so rich and generous and funny that it ought to stay in print forever.” —San Francisco Examiner

“Mitchell’s darkly comic articles are models of big-city journalism. . . . His accounts are like what Joyce might have written had he gone into journalism.”
Newsweek
