Book Description An unparalleled example of American naturalism, the Studs Lonigan trilogy follows the hopes and dissipations of its remarkable main character?a would-be "tough guy" and archetypal adolescent, born to Irish-American parents on Chicago?s South Side?through the turbulent years of World War I, the Roaring Twenties, and the Great Depression. The three novels? Young Lonigan, The Young Manhood of Studs Lonigan , and Judgment Day ?offer a vivid sense of the textures of real life: of the institutions of Catholicism, the poolroom and the dance marathon, romance and marriage, gangsterism and ethnic rivalry, and the slang of the street corner. Cited as an inspiration by writers as diverse as Kurt Vonnegut and Frank McCourt, Studs Lonigan stands as a masterpiece of social realism in the ranks of John Steinbeck?s The Grapes of Wrath and Theodore Dreiser?s An American Tragedy .
