"Never a City So Real" knows where to eat

Chicago 'hounds, we have a mutual friend in Alex Kotlowitz. Several passages in Alex's new book, "Never a City So Real," take place in some favorite Chowhound joints--Manny's, Edna's, Mac Arthur's, and Freddy's--and the author's affection for the food and people of those restaurants is evident. A chapter is also devoted to GT's, the Albany Park diner and day-laborer gathering place.
