Farrell, J.T. ( James Thomas) (1904–79) US writer. He is best known for his trilogy about Studs Lonigan (1932–35). Set in a poor Irish community in Chicago, it is typical of his harshly realistic treatment of modern city life. Later fiction includes a five-volume series of novels which revolves around Danny O'Neill, a character from the earlier trilogy, and ten novels of a projected 25-volume series called A Universe of Time.
