22gigantes.com - Alfred Damon Runyon (October 4, 1880 – December 10, 1946) was an American newspaperman and short story writer.He was best known for his short stories celebrating the world of Broadway in New York City that grew out of the Prohibition era. To New Yorkers of his generation, a "Damon Runyon character" evoked a distinctive social type from the Brooklyn or Midtown demi-monde. The adjective "Runyonesque" refers to this type of character as well as to the type of situations and dialog that Runyon depicted. He spun humorous and sentimental tales of gamblers, hustlers, actors, and gangsters, few of whom go by "square" names, preferring instead colorful monikers such as "Nathan Detroit", "Benny Southstreet", "Big Jule", "Harry the Horse", "Good Time Charley", "Dave the Dude", or "The Seldom Seen Kid". His distinctive vernacular style is known as "Runyonese": a mixture of formal speech and colorful slang, almost always in present tense, and always devoid of contractions. He is credited with coining the phrase "Hooray Henry", a term now used in British English to describe an upper-class, loud-mouthed, arrogant twit.Runyon's fictional world is also known to the general public through the musical Guys and Dolls based on two of his stories, "The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown" and "Blood Pressure". The musical additionally borrows characters and story elements from a few other Runyon stories, most notably "Pick The Winner". The film Little Miss Marker (and its two remakes, Sorrowful Jones and the 1980 Little Miss Marker) grew from his short story of the same name.Runyon was also a well-known newspaper reporter, covering sports and general news for decades for various publications and syndicates owned by William Randolph Hearst. Already famous for his fiction, he wrote a well-remembered "present tense" article on Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Presidential inauguration in 1933 for the Universal Service, a Hearst syndicate, which was merged with the co-owned International News Service in 1937.
Best Review of The Informal Execution Of Soupbone Pew:
Most helpful customer reviews 6 of 7 people found the following review helpful. A different side of Daymon Runyon By Ignatz Shmigelski I am a fan of the writing of Daymon Runyon. As such I am disappointed that his most popular stories are, to date, not available for the Kindle. This short story is in a different vein. It has some of the characteristics, and characters, but is a rather more somber tale. If you are new to this authors writings, do not be put off by this book. Daymon Runyon is truly an wonderful storyteller. I would only recommend this book if you are already familiar with his other tales. It is not a great introduction to this author. That said, this is a compelling story about friendship, and betrayal. 1 of 2 people found the following review helpful. Not from Broadway series By P&B This is not from Damon Runyon's Broadway series, nor does he use the Broadway speech pattern.This is the germinal story that Lee Marvin starred in "Emperor of the North".The (producers?) Of Emperor of the North Must have read Damon Runyon's Soupbone Pew story and thenran with the plot.Thought provoking story and a style of Damon Runyon that he rarely expressed. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Good Runyon By John J. Pannell Some new characters for you in this story, not Big Julie or Louis the Lip, but you can still picture them. See all 3 customer reviews...
