Author Biography - Saul Bellow

Saul Bellowwas praised for his vision, his ear for detail, his humor, and the masterful artistry of his prose. Born of Russian Jewish parents in Lachine, Quebec in 1915, he was raised in Chicago. He received his Bachelor's degree from Northwestern University in 1937, with honors in sociology and anthropology, and did graduate work at the University of Wisconsin. During the Second World War he served in the Merchant Marines. His first two novels, Dangling Man(1944) andThe Victim(1947) are penetrating, Kafka-like psychological studies. In 1948 he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship and spent two years in Paris and traveling in Europe, where he began his picaresque novelThe Adventures of Augie March, which went on to win the National Book Award for fiction in 1954. His later books of fiction includeSeize the Day(1956);Henderson the Rain King(1959);Mosby's Memoirs and Other Stories(1968);Mr. Sammler's Planet(1970);Humboldt's Gift(1975), which won the Pulitzer Prize;The Dean's December(1982);More Die of Heartbreak(1987);Theft(1988);The Bellarosa Connection(1989);The Actual(1996);Ravelstein(2000); and, most recently, Collected Stories(2001). Bellow has also produced a prolific amount of non-fiction, collected inTo Jerusalem and Back, a personal and literary record of his sojourn in Israel during several months in 1975, andIt All Adds Up, a collection of memoirs and essays. Bellow's many awards include the International Literary Prize forHerzog, for which he became the first American to receive the prize; the Croix de Chevalier des Arts et Lettres, the highest literary distinction awarded by France to non-citizens; the B'nai B'rith Jewish Heritage Award for "excellence in Jewish Literature"; and America's Democratic Legacy Award of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, the first time this award has been made to a literary personage. In 1976 Bellow was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature "for the human understanding and subtle analysis of contemporary culture that are combined in his work." John Michael Coetzee was born in Cape Town, South Africa, on February 9, 1940. He studied first at Cape Town and later at the University of Texas at Austin, where he earned a Ph.D. degree in literature. In 1972 he returned to South Africa and joined the faculty of the University of Cape Town. His works of fiction include Dusklands, Waiting for the Barbarians, which won South Africa s highest literary honor, the Central News Agency Literary Award, and the Life and Times of Michael K., for which Coetzee was awarded his first Booker Prize in 1983. He has also published a memoir, Boyhood: Scenes From a Provincial Life, and several essays collections. He has won many other literary prizes including the Lannan Award for Fiction, the Jerusalem Prize and The Irish Times International Fiction Prize. In 1999 he again won Britain s prestigious Booker Prize for Disgrace, becoming the first author to win the award twice in its 31-year history. In 2003, Coetzee was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature."
