About the Author:

James T. Farrell, born in 1904 on Chicago's South Side, remained an avid White Sox fan from his youth until his death in 1979. A major voice in American realism and author of the Studs Lonigan trilogy, Farrell wrote extensively about baseball, incorporating the baseball-playing memories of his youth into his novels and composing essays that recaptured the legendary heroes of his boyhood and preserved his passionate love for the game. He won nine varsity letters in high school.
Author of the Studs Lonigan trilogy, James T. Farrell (1904-79) was a native of Chicago, famous for the range and depth of his realistic portraits of the city's various populations that he drew from his own experiences and keen powers of observation. Charles Fanning is a professor emeritus of English and history at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, and the editor of Farrell's "Chicago Stories,"

Review:

"I read [Farrell] in my freshman year at Harvard, and it changed my life... Now, I realized you could write books about people who were something like the people you had grown up with. I couldn't get over the discovery." -- Norman Mailer
