Product Details

Praise

“Once more I have been impressed by Algren’s talent, his probity, and his command of a tough language that he transforms into a raw and bleeding poetry.” The Nation

“Mr. Algren, boy are you good—one of the two best authors in America.” —Ernest Hemingway

“Since the publication of The Neon Wilderness … Nelson Algren has been acknowledged as a master of that American Realism touched with poetry, which attempts to give voice to the insulted and injured. He is a philosopher of deprivation, a moral force of considerable dimensions and a wonderful user of the language.” —Donald Barthelme

“When I first read The Neon Wilderness I was knocked out and the funny thing is, as I re-read it I was KO’d again. That’s the thing: Nelson’s stories are part of our lasting literature. They don’t fade away.” —Studs Terkel, from the Afterword

“Algren’s short stories are now generally acknowledged to be literary triumphs.” New York Times
