Publisher Comments:

In 1999, the University of Chicago Press published a collection of Mike Royko's columns, entitled One More Time: The Best of Mike Royko. The response was immediate and overwhelming ? readers almost instantly began asking when the second volume of Royko columns would appear. With more than a hundred vintage Royko columns and a foreword by Roger Ebert, For the Love of Mike was the answer.

Royko, a nationally syndicated Pulitzer Prize winner, wrote for three major Chicago newspapers in the course of his 34 years as a daily columnist. Chosen from more than 7,000 columns, For the Love of Mike brings back more than a hundred vintage Royko pieces, most of which have not appeared since their initial publication, for readers across the country to enjoy. This second collection includes Royko's riffs on the consequences of accepting a White House dinner invitation (not surprisingly, he turned it down); his explanation of the notorious Ex-Cub Factor in World Series play; and his befuddlement at a private screening of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, to which he was invited by his pal Ebert, the screenplay's author. The new collection also illuminates Royko's favorite themes, topics he returned to again and again: his skewering of cultural trends, his love of Chicago, and his rage against injustice. By turns acerbic, hilarious, and deeply moving, Royko remains a writer of wit and passion who represents the best of urban journalism.

Review:

"[A] substantial second collection by the quintessential urban columnist as he witnessed the 1960s through the 1990s, preserving with a keen eye his obsessions, rages and lonely ethical crusades....While Royko's subjects range widely, his moral stance and his well-honed rhetorical feints are rock-solid....Fans will treasure this collection." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Royko was one of the most respected and admired people in the business, by readers and colleagues alike....Savor [his work] while you can." Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World

Review:

"You'll laugh. You'll cry. Royko's genius is pure Chicago." Ann Landers

Review:

"Reading a collection of Royko's columns is even more of a pleasure than encountering them one by one, and that is a large remark for he rarely wrote a piece that failed to wake you up with his hard-earned moral wit. Three cheers for Royko!" Norman Mailer

Matthew Schwartz, November 21, 2011 (view all comments by Matthew Schwartz)
Mike Royko was one of the best newspaper columnists in the country for more than 30 years. He wrote for three Chicago newspapers and became a syndicated columnist. This book is a collection of many of his best columns.
One of the best things you can say about a writer is that he or she "makes you think." Royko certainly does that. He can blast politicians or speak up for the little guy in an intelligent, poignant and often humorous way. I recommend this book highly. I am not from Chicago but still loved it.

"Synopsis" by ,
"You'll laugh. You'll cry. Royko's genius is pure Chicago."-Ann LandersIn 1999, the University of Chicago Press published a collection of Mike Royko's columns entitled One More Time: The Best of Mike Royko. The response was immediate and overwhelming-readers almost instantly began asking when a second volume of Royko's columns would appear. With more than a hundred vintage Royko columns and a foreword by Roger Ebert, this book is the answer.
