Críticas:

"The towering work of native social realism that American writers once dreamed of writing." --Willie Morris "One of the significant writers of his generation." --The New York Times Book Review "The only one of my contemporaries who I felt had more talent than myself was James Jones. And he has also been the only writer of any time for whom I felt any love." --Norman Mailer

Reseña del editor:

James Jones's saga of life in the American Midwest, newly revised five decades after it was first published After the blockbuster international success of From Here to Eternity, James Jones retreated from public life, making his home at the Handy Writers' Colony in Illinois. His goal was to write something larger than a war novel, and the result, six years in the making, was Some Came Running, a stirring portrait of small-town life in the American Midwest at a time when our country and its people were striving to find their place in the new postwar world. Five decades later, it has been revised and reedited under the direction of the Jones estate to allow for a leaner, tighter read. The result is the masterpiece Jones intended: a tale whose brutal honesty is as shocking now as on the day it was first published. This ebook features an illustrated biography of James Jones including rare photos from the author's estate. "The towering work of native social realism that American writers once dreamed of writing." -Willie Morris "One of the significant writers of his generation." -The New York Times Book Review "The only one of my contemporaries who I felt had more talent than myself was James Jones. And he has also been the only writer of any time for whom I felt any love." -Norman Mailer James Jones (1921-1977) was one of the most accomplished American authors of the World War II generation. He served in the U.S. Army from 1939 to 1945, and was present at the attack on Pearl Harbor as well as the battle for Guadalcanal, where he was decorated with a Purple Heart and Bronze Star. Jones's experiences informed his epic novels From Here to Eternity and The Thin Red Line. His other works include Some Came Running, The Pistol, Go to the Widow-Maker, The Ice-Cream Headache and Other Stories, The Merry Month of May, A Touch of Danger, Whistle, and To the End of the War-a book of previously unpublished fiction.
