Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Saul Bellow's fiction, honored by a Nobel Prize and a Pulitzer, among other awards, has made him a literary giant. Now the man himself and a lifetime of his insightful views on a range of topics spring off the page in this, his first nonfiction collection, which encompasses articles, lectures, essays, travel pieces, and an "Autobiography of Ideas." It All Adds Up is a fascinating journey through literary America over the last forty years, guided by one of the "most gifted chroniclers in the Western World" (The London Times).

Synopsis:

Saul Bellow, who will be celebrating his 80th birthday in June 1995, offers an eclectic collection of insightful views on a wide variety of topics, ranging from a tribute to Mozart to remembrances of friends such as John Cheever and Allan Bloom to myriad ruminations on his beloved city of Chicago.
