On the last day of summer, a young college grad moves to Chicago and rents a small apartment on the north side of the city, by the lake. This is the story of the five seasons he lives there, during which he meets gangsters, gamblers, policemen, a brave and garrulous bus driver, a cricket player, a librettist, his first girlfriend, a shy apartment manager, and many other riveting souls, not to mention a wise and personable dog of indeterminate breed.

A love letter to Chicago, the Great American City, and a wry account of a young man’s coming-of-age during the one summer in White Sox history when they had the best outfield in baseball, Chicago is a novel that will plunge you into a city you will never forget and may well wish to visit for the rest of your days.

“This coming-of-?age novel follows a young grad student who moves to the city and meets a wide cast of colorful characters during his five-?season stay. Described as ‘a love letter to Chicago,’ Doyle’s novel takes us back to a Chicago of years ago that feels both foreign and familiar.” Chicago Tribune
