Storyline

Algren spotlights the hard-knock life and authentic creative legacy of one of the most underrated writers of the twentieth century, Nelson Algren. Algren's brutally honest portrayal of the American underclass and his hard-nosed lifestyle became his pathway to compassion. Through interviews with Algren contemporaries, experts, and "literary soulmates," as well as through the photography of Algren's friends, Art Shay and Stephen Deutch, the film tells his story. It celebrates his tremendous contribution to and influence on American letters, and pushes Algren, champion of the marginalized, out from the margins. Written by Michael Caplan
