Description - The Life of Saul Bellow: Love and Strife, 1965-2005 by Zachary Leader
The final volume of the definitive authorised biography of one of the greatest American writers.
'A moving testament to one of the last century's greatest writers' Sunday Times
At forty-nine, Saul Bellow was at the pinnacle of American letters - he was rich, famous and critically acclaimed, with the best yet to come- Mr Sammler's Planet, Humboldt's Gift, all his best stories. He went on to win two more National Book Awards, a Pulitzer Prize, and the Nobel Prize. However, away from his desk, Bellow's life was set to become embroiled in controversy- over foreign affairs, race, religion, education, social policy, the state of culture, the fate of the novel.
From the women he pursued and his turbulent family relations, to his struggles with cultural relativism and the perceived excesses of civil rights movements, this second and final volume of Zachary Leader's monumental Life of Saul Bellow charts Bellow's heroic energy and will throughout his life, right to the end - where his immense achievements and their costs, to himself and others, became ever more apparent.
