Keith Koeneman writes about Chicago history, politics and culture. His book, First Son: The Biography of Richard M. Daley, will be published this spring by the University of Chicago Press. Built on unprecedented access to the key players in the long Daley administration, First Son tells the story of a complicated leader—sensitive and tough, impatient and persistent—who as mayor not only ran but also embodied Chicago.
