NewtonThis fiftieth-anniversary critical edition of Man with the Golden Arm shows Algren at his very finest. The edition closes with over a hundred pages of reminiscences, letters, early press reviews and recent scholarly essays. If you are to judge a man by his friends, then we should rate Algren high indeed: Studs Terkel, Kurt Vonnegut, even Lou Reed wanted to include a testimonial...The Man with the Golden Arm is a great book...No reader with an interest in American literature, or in the sufferings of ordinary people, can afford to ignore it.
