Writing in the breezy style that made his syndicated Sun-Times column so widely read, Chicago's favorite newspaperman-about-town and TV personality presents his city as only he could know it. Kup's Chicago is a step back into a time of Daly the First, the supremacy of the Pump Room and three martini lunches. This is a grand and exuberant tour of the politics, literature, crime, football, business and art that made 50s and 60s Chicago the "City of Big Shoulders."
