Summary
Saul Bellow is arguably the premier literary figure in the U.S. in the final decades of the 20th century. Erudite and entertaining, a novelist whose work booksellers and librarians shelve not under fiction, but under literature, Bellow has seen his work both transformed to the popular silver screen and graced with the Nobel Prize for Literature. In this program, he talks about himself and his characters; his childhood, parents, and education; how he came to be a writer; his views of the world and the people who inhabit it; and the role of ideas in literature.
