Chicago ePub and PDF Available
This is the least good of Studs’ books I've read.Fellow Goodreadsers’ reviews celebrate this book, noting Studs’ importance to Chicago, his love of Chicago, and the uncharacteristic speaking as himself, rather than as an interviewer of others.Studs’ union with his city is undeniably part of the joy of reading him.But one needn’t read this book to get that.Nor does one need to read this book to hear Studs’ own voice—both the better Touch and Go and the even better Talking to Myself allow us that pleasure.Disappointingly, events and stories briefly referenced or recounted here appear in longer and better-told segments in these latter two books.

The photographs of our city interspersed throughout do add a dimension to Studs’ ode to Chicago.Strikingly, these photographs don’t so much reveal Chicago, but a previous Chicago, a Chicago of Studs’ era.Check out the Appalachian toughs in Studs’ neighborhood of Uptown on page 62 and the pair of butchers on page 117.These photographs, and the others they are among are important for the same reason Studs’ famous books, Working and Division Street, are—they vividly capture life of the working class city in a particular moment in time.
