Chicago’s foremost poet of addicts, prostitutes and hoodlums, Nelson Algren is renowned for capturing society’s underbelly in several acclaimed books (The Man With the Golden Arm, Walk on the Wild Side). In this absorbing and snappily-edited portrait of the prickly author, Chicago filmmaker Michael Caplan creates a rich, visual mosaic that echoes Algren’s gritty universe.
With thousands of evocative photographs, and interviews with Algren fans (John Sayles, Billy Corgan), the film charts the writer’s complicated life, including his combustible love-hate relationships with Simone de Beauvoir and the Windy City itself.
“..Stylishly made — it captures the humor and energy of Algren's social life and his writing…” —Chicago Tribune
