In this comical collection of memories, storyteller Daniel Pinkwater tells how he grew into the beloved figure he is today: a robust genius of the printed page and rotund genie of the radio.

In inimitable fashion, Pinkwater recounts the conversation with his father that suddenly made him an art major in college. He describes his inauguration as a sculptor in a sleazy Chicago art factory and recalls setting off for a bright center of the American Art Scene, or at least as close as Hoboken, New Jersey. Finally, we watch as pinkwater pictures his first true audience, children.

Chicago Day/Hoboken Nights shows how this visual artist turned to writing, only to be hailed as a comic master (Washington Post Book World) Who has always been a born storyteller (The Pittsburgh Press). As millions of radio listeners already know, no one has had a life quite like Daniel Pinkwater's. Download and start listening now!

    " This book cemented my love for cities (and the City), plus inveigling me into the mysteries of art. So there's a lot to thank/blame it for. Give it a shot. "

    " While not nearly as deliriously funny as Pinkwater's fiction, these short bursts of memoir are amusing enough. No way I'd recommend a Pinkwater newbie to start here though. "
