Overview

The spirit of a place is most aptly captured by its artists. Writers in particular have long been fascinated with the city of Chicago. "Smokestacks & Skyscapers," a new anthology, is the most comprehensive collection of Chicago writing to date. Featuring more than seventy authors who have written on the city or are Chicagoans themselves, this edition includes such well-known names as Carl Sandburg, Jane Addams, Nelson Algren, Saul Bellows, Upton Sinclair, Gewndolyn Brooks, and Richard Wright, as well as contemporary voices like Maxine Chernoff, Sandra Cisneros, and David Mamet. Selections are drawn from novels, short stories, poetry, plays, and memoirs. The first collection of its kind since 1952, this anthology not only places Chicago writing in its literary context but also finds through its many voices the heart of this complex, vigorous, wonderfully paradoxical city.

    a most awesome collection

    it is about time that a new anthology of america's true city of letters was published. this collection covers the biggest names in chicago writing (or any literature period) to the moer obscure authors. it's all here, novel extracts, poems, memoirs, essays, articles, stories, drama... and there is so much more to chicago style writing than what is in this collection, as is pointed out in the afterward. but this is an excellent place to start. i highly recommend this collection to everyone, and i think that those who love chicago or live in chicago should be required to read it.
