Description
Saul Bellow was a dedicated correspondent until a couple of years before his death, and his letters, spanning eight decades, show us a twentieth-century life in all its richness and complexity. Friends, lovers, wives, colleagues and fans all cross these pages. Some of the finest letters are to fellow writers – William Faulkner, John Cheever, Philip Roth, Martin Amis, Ralph Ellison, Cynthia Ozick and Wright Morris. Intimate, ironical, richly observant and funny, these letters reveal the influences at work in the man and illuminate his enduring legacy.
