''It is the special distinction of Mr. Bellow as a novelist that he is able to give us, step by step, the world we really live each day--and in the same movement to show us that the real suffering of not understanding, the deprivation of light. It is this double gift that explains the unusual contribution he is making to our fiction.'' --New York Times
''One of the finest short novels in the language.'' --Guardian
''Saul Bellow is one of the giants of the twentieth-century novel. Read Seize the Day and see why.'' --Irish Times
