The Devil’s Stocking is the story of Ruby Calhoun, a boxer accused of murder in a shadowy world of low-purse fighters, cops, con artists, and bar girls. Chronicling a battle for truth and human dignity which gives way to a larger story of life and death decisions, literary grandmaster Nelson Algren’s last novel — based on the life of boxer and death-row inmate Rubin “Hurricane” Carter - is a fitting capstone to a long and brilliant career.
“The Devil’s Stocking is clearly vintage Algren.” — New York Times Book Review
