Revisiting Chicago: City on the Make Published in 1951, Nelson Algren's Chicago: City on the Make captured the gritty side of Chicago in poetry and prose. More than half a century later, the city is an almost entirely different place, though Algren's passion for urban life still resonates. Join editor and lit scholar Bill Savage for a discussion of his annotations to the 60th anniversary edition of Algren's book. —Jamie Keiles
