James T. Farrell (1904 – 1979) was an American writer of fiction and poetry. Much of his writing is based on his experiences growing up and living in Chicago. One of his most famous works is the Studs Lonigan trilogy which was made into a film in 1960 and a television miniseries in 1979. Farrell was noted throughout his writing career for his ability to consistently write about the world of childhood and youth, and especially through a boy’s point of view.
