Meet the Author

A literary giant, the novelist Saul Bellow (1915-2005) was one of the foremost chroniclers of the Jewish-American post-war experience. His many prizes include the Pulitzer, three National Book Awards, and the Nobel Prize, which he received in 1976 for the "human understanding and subtle analysis of contemporary culture that are combined in his work." Herzog, Seize the Day, Henderson the Rain King, and the picaresque novel The Adventures of Augie March are among his best-loved books.
