Slats Grobnik and Some Other Friends is an old (out-of-print?) collection of essays, originally published as columns in Chicago Daily News (1966-1973), by Pulitzer prize-winning writer Mike Royko.I ate a lot of chicken nuggets while I read this book. And I read it at a super leisurely, once-a-week, sometimes-in-the-bathroom pace. It took me maybe two months, just reading a short column here and there. I dont know, it was nice! It felt like reading letters from a really funny friend, albeit a friend from another time and place.Of course it is nice to read about Chicago mainstays like Billy Goat Tavern as they once were, so that doubles the books charm.

Most of Roykos writing is very light and fluffy, although he has his moments of incision. Hes witty, but perhaps the dated lexicon of his time makes him sound almost twee.So! If the thought of midcentury Chicago makes you feel a little warm and gooey, sentimental for maybe a place youre not really from (ahem), snatch this book right up!
