7 Stories Press publishes Nelson Algren 'lost novel'
7 Stories Press
noted in a press release that Nelson Algren sought humanity in the
urban wilderness of postwar America, where his powerful voice rose from
behind the billboards and down tin-can alleys, from among the
marginalized and ignored, the outcasts and scapegoats, the punks and
junkies, the whores and down-on-their luck gamblers, the punch-drunk
boxers and skid-row drunkies and kids who knew they'd never reach the
age of twenty-one: all of them admirable in Algren’s eyes for their
vitality and no-bullshit forthrightness, their insistence on living and
their ability to find a laugh and a dream in the unlikeliest places.
