The Man with the Golden Arm, Paperback

The Man with the Golden Arm Paperback



The Man with the Golden Arm tells the story of Frankie Machine, the golden arm dealer at a back street Chicago gambling den.

Frankie reckons he's a tough guy in the Chicago underworld but finds that he's not tough enough to kick his heroin addiction.

With consummate skill and a finely-tuned ear for the authentic dialogue of the backstreets, Algren lays bare the tragedy and humour of Frankie's world. Features the first UK publication of a foreword by Kurt Vonnegut and an afterword by Studs Terkel.
