The Adventures of Saul Bellow

The Adventures of Saul Bellow

Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, three National Book Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, Saul Bellow transformed modern literature. He illuminated post-war American Jewish life through philosophical depth and a wild sense of humour. Some of the greatest American writers alive today credit him as their main inspiration.

Far from an easy hero, Bellow also offended the social sensibilities of many readers, wreaked havoc in his personal relationships and left a trail of unanswered questions in his wake. Weaving together a chronological study of his oeuvre with an intimate portrait of the writer’s inner life and relationships, The Adventures of Saul Bellow is essential viewing for Bellow fans.
