Reviews
"A most accomplished performance, and a fascinating account of a great American novelist." --Michael Holroyd

"James Atlas is a model biographer. He writes with the conversational ease of a born storyteller, giving us both a richly informed history of one of America's most original and gifted writers and a mythos of the artist's life in the twentieth century. . . . As fascinating a portrait as any of Bellow's arresting fictional characters." --Joyce Carol Oates

"Like a sparring partner, James Atlas enters the ring and weaves in and out of Bellow's extravagant life and extraordinary novels with great dexterity." --Michael Holroyd
