it was ok

I may have liked this more had I not read it on the heels of Algren's The Man with the Golden Arm. After Algren, this book was very old fashioned and slow. I found the character of Albert Corde unlikable and I got to a point where I just didn't care what happened to him.

Joe Your review struck me as funny because I'm reading The Dean's December after reading The Man with the Golden Arm. I found Algren to enjoyable, as I do Bellow. They have two very distinct styles. I more a fan, however, of Bellow's style. Enjoy your tour of Chicago Lit.
