B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Nelson Algren (1909-1981) - original name Nelson Ahlgren Abraham American author, who won the first National Book Award for fiction in 1950 for THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM, which was later made into a film, starring Frank Sinatra. Chicago inspired Algren, like the writer James T. Farrell, more than any other city. He depicted its drunks, pimps, prostitutes, freaks, drug addicts, prize-fighters, corrupt politicians, and hoodlums - the whole underside of urban life. Algren published four novels and over fifty short stories, poetry, criticism, and travel books. His trans-Atlantic love affair with the French writer Simone de Beauvoir lasted with intervals for 17 years and ended in bitter accusations. De Beauvoir dedicated her book The Mandarins to Algren, and kept his ring, but never left Jean-Paul Sartre, her life's companion, who was no good in bed. "The great strength of a fighting man is his pride. That was Young Rocco's strength in the rounds that followed. The boy called Kid Class couldn't keep him down. He was down in the fourth, twice in the fifth, and again in the seventh. In that round he stood with his back against the ropes, standing the boy off with his left in the seconds before the bell. He had the trick of looking impassive when he was hurt, and his face at the bell looked as impassive as a catcher's mitt." (from 'He Swung and He Missed,' 1942)

    Nelson Algren – Streetwise Chicago Author. Many Americans have seen The Man withthe Golden Arm but few know of his creator, Chicago novelist Nelson Algren.
    Nelson Algren – Streetwise Chicago Author In re Petition to Change Name, Circuit Court #44C-84 (1944) Many Americans have seen "The Man with the Golden Arm" but few know of his creator, Chicago novelist Nelson Algren. He and his family left Detroit for Chicago before he started grammar school, and rooted him in the city whose "underbelly" he would portray so clearly in his writing. Algren finished his journalism degree at the University of Illinois just as the Great Depression settled over the land, driving him across the country in search of work. Hitchhiking and riding the rails with thousands of fellow seekers, he tried a multitude of odd jobs until he published his first article in Story Magazine (1933). His first novel appeared after a jail stint earned by stealing a typewriter ( Somebody in Boots ). Back in Chicago, Algren quickly assumed an important role in the leftist intellectual and literary network of the 1930s, with such writers as Richard Wright and Jack Conroy. He joined the Chicago John Reed Club, co-edited The New Anvil Magazine, and compiled neighborhood studies for the WPA Illinois Writers' Project. During World War II he joined the army and served overseas.

    Nelson Algren
    I gave the city what it needed: compassion, humor, rage. I saw her suffering, struggling, dancing on a noisy, smoky stage. But the decades grew greedy, dark— the battles seemed vain. Cruelty, callousness ruled and mocked at the pain. I turned a wry joke here, a lusty one there, to ease the anguish and tame the terror. So now, to their taste, each reader can choose soft flecks of laughter, or hard midnight news.

    Ernest Hemingway predicted that Nelson Algren would "rank among our best American novelists." Malcolm Cowley hailed him as Carl Sandburg's successor, dubbing him "the poet of the Chicago slums." In 1950 his classic novel, The Man with the Golden Arm, earned him the first national Book Award. Playing out his youthful ambition to become "the American Gorky," Algren made himself a voice for the lost and despised—addict, prostitute, murderer, prisoner— portraying, with poetry and compassion, the dark underside of the American dream. A Depression radical who rode the rails as a hobo and stole a typewriter to finish his first novel, a member of leftwing literary circles with James T. Farrell and Richard Wright, he was blackballed by the Chicago Public Library, hounded by the FBI, and exploited by Otto Preminger. Still, Algren remained a hilarious raconteur, and whether as wartime correspondent in Saigon or investigative reporter of the controversial murder charge against boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, he was willful, uncompromising, originaland he managed to produce an impressive body of fiction, a lasting legacy in the deeply American tradition of such writers as Dreiser, Anderson, and Twain.

    By nights when the yellow salamanders of the EL bend all one way and the cold rain runs with the red-lit rain. By the way the city's million wires are burdened only by lightest snow; When chairs are stacked and glasses are turned and arc-lamps all are dimmed. By days when the wind bangs alley gates ajar and the sun goes by on the wind. By nights when the moon is an only child above the measured thunder of the cars, you may know Chicago's heart at last.
