I’m just a few page into Algren’s masterpiece. I had no idea what to expect. A cop, a drug addict, a police statioin. I was only 8 pages in when I realized my leisure reading hat would need to be replaced, and quickly, with my critical reading beret. Quite a challege for a girl who has completely neglected her reading for a year.

If you feel like reading with me, do. I’m eager to talk to someone about this book as I’m going through it. More to come.
