About this product
- DescriptionIn 1921 Ben Hecht wrote a column for the Chicago Daily News that his editor called 'journalism extraordinary; journalism that invaded the realm of literature'. Hecht's collection of sixty-four of these pieces, illustrated with striking pen drawings by Herman Rosse, is a timeless caricature of urban American life in the jazz age. From the glittering opulence of Michigan Avenue to the darkest ruminations of an escaped convict, from captains of industry to immigrant day laborers, Hecht captures 1920s Chicago in all its furor, intensity, and absurdity.
- Author BiographyBen Hecht (1894-1964) was a reporter and columnist for the Chicago Daily Journal and the Chicago Daily News as well as a playwright, novelist, short story writer, and scriptwriter.
