Synopsis:

Henderson the Rain King is a seriocomic novel by Saul Bellow, first published in 1959. The novel examines the midlife crisis of Eugene Henderson, an unhappy millionaire. The story concerns Henderson's search for meaning. A larger-than-life 55-year-old who has accumulated money, position, and a large family, he nonetheless feels unfulfilled. He makes a spiritual journey to Africa, where he draws emotional sustenance from experiences with African tribes. Deciding that his true destiny is as a healer, Henderson returns home, planning to enter medical school.

?A kind of wildly delirious dream made real by the force of Bellow?s rollicking prose and the offbeat inventiveness of his language.? ?Chicago Tribune

?Bellow?s aura of fable is constantly washed over by humor, impulsive creation, and actual, turbulent detail.? ?The Nation

About the Author: Saul Bellow won the Pulitzer Prize for his novel HUMBOLDT?S GIFT in 1975, and in 1976 was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature ?for the human understanding and subtle analysis of contemporary culture that are combined in his work.? He is the only novelist to receive three National Book Awards, for THE ADVENTURES OF AUGIE MARCH, HERZOG, and MR. SAMMLER?S PLANET
