Book Description Viking Press, 1978. hardcover. 1st Edition. New York. 1978. Viking Press. 1st Edition. Very Small Yellow Mark At Top Corner Of Front Free Endpaper, Otherwise Very Good In Dustjacket. 282 pages. hardcover. William Joseph Kennedy (born January 16, 1928) is an American writer and journalist born and raised in Albany, New York, to William J. Kennedy and to Mary E. McDonald. Kennedy was raised a Catholic. Many of his novels feature the interaction of members of the fictional Irish-American Phelan family, and make use of incidents of Albany's history and the supernatural. Kennedy's works include The Ink Truck (1969), Legs (1975), Billy Phelan's Greatest Game (1978), Ironweed (1983, winner of 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction; film, 1987), and Roscoe (2002). In 2011, he published Changó's Beads and Two-Tone Shoes, which one reviewer called a book 'written with such brio and encompassing humanity that it may well deserve to be called the best of the bunch'. He is a graduate of Siena College in Loudonville, New York, and currently resides at Averill Park, a hamlet about 16 miles east of Albany. After serving in the Army, Kennedy lived in Puerto Rico, where he met his mentor, Saul Bellow, who encouraged him to write novels. While living in San Juan, he befriended journalist/author Hunter S. Thompson, a friendship that continued throughout their careers. Kennedy, who had been eager to leave Albany, returned to his hometown and worked for the Albany Times Union as an investigative journalist writing stories exposing activities of Daniel P. O'Connell's political machine. His use of Albany as the setting for eight of his novels was described in 2011 by book critic Jonathan Yardley as painting 'a portrait of a single city perhaps unique in American fiction'. In 2001, Kennedy received the Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award, presented annually by the Tulsa Library Trust. He has written a nonfictional account of Albany titled O Albany! 0670166677. keywords: 40293. inventory # 20130.
