Colin Asher presents Never a Lovely so Real: The Life and Work of Nelson Algren

Event date: 
Thursday, August 15, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Never a Lovely So Real: The Life and Work of Nelson Algren is the unparalleled biography of one of America’s most celebrated and least understood writers. It is a beautifully written and rigorously researched tribute to the fraught and complicated life of a singular spirit. Celebrated by writers including Richard Wright, Don DeLillo, Simone de Beauvoir, Thomas Pynchon, Betty Friedan, Cormac McCarthy, and others, Nelson Algren (1909–1981) wrote eleven books and countless essays and won the first National Book Award for his novel The Man with the Golden Arm, which was later turned into a film starring Frank Sinatra. Yet his brilliant literary successes were shadowed by secret FBI scrutiny that spanned decades, and his promising literary career was ultimately foreshortened by the strain of the seemingly inexplicable loss of support from publishers and peers (in fact the result of the FBI investigation), and his name diminished.
