Asher, an instructor at the City University of New York, scrupulously attempts to separate facts from myths (some created by Algren himself) as he explores how a writer who produced prose-poetry of such a high order could now be largely forgotten. Algren, who a year earlier had won the first National Book Award for his best-selling novel “The Man With the Golden Arm,” also expressed his anger about the deepening class divisions that he felt were undermining hope for a better postwar city and world.

Having wallowed in the Russians long before I was old enough to appreciate them on a social level, I was nevertheless a born progressive, both my deep south parents being escapees during the post depression years that sent so many educated southern brats fleeing North to find work, among other things, despite their 'blue' blood (They were distant cousins, God help me!) and snotty connections.

Anyway, it's an interesting read in itself.
