Summary

Summary

Collected here in one volume is James T. Farrell's renowned trilogy of the youth, early manhood, and death of Studs Lonigan- Young Lonigan, The Young Manhood of Studs Longan , and Judgement Day. In this relentlessly naturalistic portrait, Studs starts out his life full of vigour and ambition, qualities that are crushed by the Chicago youth's limited social and economic environment. Studs swaggering and vicious comrades, his narrow family, and his educational, and religious background lead him to a life of futile dissipation.

Ann Douglas provides an illuminating introductory essay to Farrell's masterpiece, one of the greatest novels of American Literature.
