"First printing, August,1958."
"A Signet Book Complete and Unabridged."--Cover.
"'Studs Lonigan was finished on February 1, 1935, shortly before my thirty-first birthday. I began working on what became this trilogy in June, 1929. ... One way of regarding this trilogy is as a literary recreation which tells the life story of a boy and a young man. I view it as a tragic story of how defeat can come in a setting of spiritual poverty. I think and many readers agree, that there is something of the story of more than one generation in these pages. It is my hope that this edition will be a source of new insight for some readrs and a stimulation for a quickened sympathy, as distinct from sentimentality, in reference to all of those problems, confusions, feelings and emotions which are part of the condition of youth in the recent past and the present."--Introduction to the Signet Edition by James T. Farrell, New York City, April 22, 1958.
