A novel written by Edwin O'Connor, a tale of big-city politics, perhaps inspired by the career of longtime Boston Mayor James M. Curley. While the city is never named, it is frequently assumed to be Boston.

The novel was an immediate bestseller, won the Atlantic Prize, received very positive critical reviews, and was later made into a John Ford film staring Spencer Tracy.
