9780141186726: Guys and Dolls: and Other Writings (Penguin Classics)

From Dave the Dude to Al Capone: a defining collection from the world of Damon Runyon Damon Runyon grew up in the West, moved to New York City, and became one of the leading voices of American popular culture. From sports writing to short fiction, this unique collection offers an eclectic sampling of his extraordinary talent. Here are newspaper pieces, stories- including the last one he ever composed-poetry, and, of course, the Broadway tales for which he is chiefly remembered: "Guys and Dolls, Blood Pressure, The Bloodhounds of Broadway," and others. Featuring works that are impossible to find elsewhere, and Runyon's signature eye for detail-particularly the sounds, smells, and tastes of New York-this book brings an American icon to a new generation of readers.

Book Description Penguin Classics, U.S.A., 2008. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. Damon Runyon wrote humorous and sentimental tales of gamblers, hustlers, actors, and gangsters of New York during Prohibition. He wrote in a distinctive style which is a mixture of formal speech and colorful slang, almost always in the present tense and without contractions. This book has 36 stories based in Broadway and 17 other stories and poems (only 2) and reports of trials such as that of Al Capone. Lots to enjoy in 635 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 000330
