J. Blue is a mysterious man. Charming and carefree, he goes from rags to riches after the inheritance of an unexpected fortune, only to forgo money and power for the love of Lady Poverty. This life of service leads him to embrace fully his Christian faith—loving the unlovable, instructing the ignorant, and remembering that it is by grace that we are saved. In this new edition of Myles Connolly’s 1928 novel, readers can again encounter the mystery of “Mr. Blue.” The new Introduction by Stephen Mirarchi places the book in historical context and explains its literary structure, just as Mirarchi’s exhaustive Notes reveal Connolly’s sharp command of his craft. Readers will see more clearly than ever before—as the novel’s narrator does—how “Blue made one believe almost anything is possible,” especially a life of joyful self-giving.
