Some Came Running: A Novel | [James Jones]

Some Came Running: A Novel

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.

Publisher's Summary

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 listen. The result is the masterpiece Jones intended: a tale whose brutal honesty is as shocking now as on the day it was first published.

    "I love Dick Hill"
    Any additional comments?

    Even Dick Hill must have died of boredom reading this one. I really tried to like it, but couldn't finish it. So disappointed.
