Editorial Reviews

Julian Moynihan
This age is full of fearfull abysses. If people are to go ahead they must move and into and through these abysses. The old definitions of balance and sanity do not help on this journey, but the ideals these terms gesture at remain, even though they require fresh definition. Love still counts, justice still counts, and particularly intellectual and emotional courage still count. This book reserves its sharpest criticism for those people...who try to cope homeopathically with the threat of violence under which we all live by cultivating an analogous, imaginative violence or intemperate despair.
Books of the Century; New York Times review, September 1964

All of the Saul Bellow books are in Spanish. Too bad they don't tell you this in the details or overview. Ugh.
