Author information

Recipient of the first National Book Award for "The Man with the Golden Arm" and lauded by Hemingway as "one of the two best authors in America," NELSON ALGREN (1909-1981) remains one of our most defiant and enduring novelists. His body of work includes five major novels, two short fiction collections, a book-length poem, and several collections of reportage--one of the most substantial of any American writer.
