“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
“It is an unusual and brilliant book…a bold scribbling upon the wall for comfortable Americans to ponder and digest.” –New York Times
Never Come Morning is unique among the novels of Algren. The author’s only romance, the novel concerns Bruno Bicek, a would-be boxer from Chicago’s Northwest side, and Steffi, the woman who shares his dream while living his nightmare. “It is an unusual and brilliant book,” said The New York Times. “A bold scribbling upon the wall for comfortable Americans to ponder and digest.” This new edition features an introduction by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. and an interview with Nelson Algren by H.E.F. Donohue.
