Synopsis

Nelson Algren's The Devil’s Stocking is the story of Ruby Calhoun, a boxer accused of murder in a shadowy world of low-purse fighters, cops, con artists, and bar girls. Chronicling a battle for truth and human dignity which gives way to a larger story of life and death decisions, literary grandmaster Nelson Algren’s last novel is a fitting capstone to a long and brilliant career. Recipient of the first National Book Award for  The Man with the Golden Arm  and lauded by Hemingway as "one of the two best authors in America," Nelson Algren (1909-1981) remains one of our most defiant and enduring novelists. His body of work includes five major novels, two short fiction collections, a book-length poem, and several collections of reportage. one of the most substantial of any American writer.
