The Man With the Golden Arm - Nelson Algren

1949 - Doubleday &, New York - First Edition
There’s people in hell who want ice water…’

Algren’s shockingly brilliant novel of the disinherited,
The Man With the Golden Arm tells the sordid tale of Frankie Machine, the ‘golden arm’ dealer of a back street Chicago gambling den, whose heroin addiction and failing marriage drive him to the depths of despair.

The character of Frankie Machine was memorably brought to life on the silver screen by Frank Sinatra, in Otto Preminger’s 1955 film adaptation of the novel, which co-starred Kim Novak and Eleanor Parker.
