The feature length documentary, Algren explores the impact of one of the most underrated and influential writers of the twentieth century, Nelson Algren.
Nelson Algren exploded onto the national literary scene in 1950, winning the first National Book Award for The Man with the Golden Arm. His dense, almost poetic, prose garnered him attention and praise from the literary elite. His subject matter, Chicago's underclass -- pimps, prostitutes, drug addicts and criminals -- courted controversy with the public.
