About this Item

First Edition, First Printing of the author's critically acclaimed novel. Signed by the author on the title page. Bound in the publisher's blue-black covers with title in silver to spine. Covers are clean with little noticeable wear. Text block and interior pages are clean and unmarked. Binding is square and solid. Dust jacket is edge worn with age-toning along margins, with rubbing, some splits, and small tears, with $5.75 price intact on flap, in mylar sleeve. Bellow won the 1965 National Book Award for this book. In concluding his acceptance speech, Bellow said," We live in a technological age which seems insurmountably hostile to the artist. He must fight for his life, for his freedom, along with everyone else -- for justice and equality, threatened by mechanization and bureaucracy. This is not to advise the novelist to rush immediately into the political sphere. But in the first stage he must begin to exert his intelligence, long unused. If he is to reject politics, he must understand what he is rejecting. He must begin to think, and to think not merely of his own narrower interests and needs.". Bookseller Inventory # 004679
