Read full description of the books:

An unusual book and a brilliant book - The New York Times

One of the finest works of American literature that I have read - James T. Farrell

A knockout - Saturday Review of Literature

Never Come Morning depicts the intensity of feeling, the tawdry but potent dreams, the crude but forceful poetry, and the frustrated longing for human dignity residing in the lives of the Poles of Chicago's Northwest Side, and this revelation informs us all that there lies an ocean of life at our doorstep - an unharnessed, unchanneled and unknown ocean... - Richard Wright

Utter sincerity and psychological truth - Philip Rahv in The Nation

Mr. Algren is out to shock, but he does so without seeming to sensationalize. I, for one, found myself believing - Clinton Fadiman in The New Yorker

The girls sitting around the juke-box in Mama Tomek's, the boys playing under the El, the look of Chicago streets in the rain... It is the poetry of familiar things that is missing in the other Chicago novels... Algren is a poet the Chicago slums. - Malcolm Cowley

A book, a true book, is the writer's confessional. For, whether he would have it so or not, he is betrayed, directly or indirectly, by his characters, into presenting, publicly, his innermost feelings. - Nelson Algren

Read information about the author

Ebook Never Come Morning read Online! Born of Swedish-immigrant parents, Nelson Ahlgren Abraham moved at an early age from Detroit to Chicago. At Illinois University he studied journalism. His experiences as a migrant worker during the Depression provided the material for his first novel Somebody in Boots (1935). Throughout his life Algren identified with the American underdog. From 1936 to 1940 (the highpoint of left-wing ideas on the US literary scene) he was editor of the Illinois Writers' Project. In 1942, after putting the finishing touches to his second novel, he joined the war as an enlisted man. Never Come Morning received universal acclaim, and eventually sold over a million copies.

Algren's style is a dark naturalism that passionately records the details of trapped urban existence with flashes of melancholy poetry. His characters are the lowlife drifters, whores, junkies and barflies of poverty row. He records the bravado of their colloquial language and lays their predicament bare.
