About the Author:

Saul Bellow (1915-2005), author of numerous novels, novellas, and stories, was the only novelist to receive three National Book Awards. He also received the Pulitzer Prize, the Nobel Prize in Literature, the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, and the American Academy of Arts and Letters Gold Medal for Fiction. During the 1967 Arab-Israeli conflict, Bellow served as a war correspondent for Newsday. He taught at New York University, Princeton, and the University of Minnesota and was chairman of the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago.

From AudioFile:

Seventyish, world-weary, Holocaust survivor, and keen observer of people, Mr. Artur Sammler incisively comments on civilization, the human condition and contemporary culture as he trudges through New York City. Kandinsky's voice is the perfect complement to Bellow's carefully polished words and phrases. He deliciously savors and expands upon every nuance. Kandinsky's repertoire of accents and characterizations is outstanding, and he breaks form only a few times. Brilliant in print, this audio production will entice a new generation to experience the wit and intelligence of a work that has matured like fine wine since its introduction in 1970. E.E.L. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
