Author Nelson Algren
Condition Fine
 


A pictorial post card with an image from Instanbul on the front, dated 26 July 1960 and addressed to Herman Kogan, the notable Chicago writer. The inked message reads: "These stupid Asiatics began as Chinamen and now they want to join us. I think they picked a bad moment. I may have to give them back to the Greeks. Next week I look at the Greeks. May have to give them back to the Turks. Praise Allah, --Arm". Algren wrote this post card during his six-month stay in Europe. Though he spent most of this time in Paris, he spent several weeks traveling Greece and Turkey with Simone de Beauvoir. A wonderful piece of Algren ephemera, written with the Chicago inconoclast's unmistakable sense of humor.
