A collection of legendary columnist Mike Royko’s best work from the Chicago Tribune, edited by his son David Royko.

For more than 30 years, Mike Royko was a part of the daily fabric of Chicagoans’ lives, penning often humorous and always honest columns first for the Chicago Daily News, then the Sun-Times, and finally the Tribune. Culled from thousands of his Tribune columns and edited by his son David Royko, this collection offers up his best material from the last stage in his career, which was cut short by his premature death in 1997.

About the Author:

Born and raised in Chicago, Mike Royko (1932-1997) produced more than 7,500 daily columns for the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, and the Chicago Daily News. He also wrote numerous books, including the acclaimed Boss, a critical biography of Richard J. Daley and the Chicago Democratic machine. He won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1972.

David Royko is the oldest son of Mike and Carol Royko. He is a licensed clinical psychologist and the director of Family Mediation Services of the Circuit Court of Cook County. He has written about a range of topics, including autism, music, divorce, and his family, for publications such as the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, the New York Times, and Parents Magazine. Royko is the author or editor of several books, and he blogs for the Huffington Post. Find more of his work at He lives in the Chicago area with his wife and two sons.
