It All Adds Up: From the Dim Past to the Uncertain Future, by Saul Bellow
In It All Adds Up, Saul Bellow takes readers on a brilliantly insightful journey through literary America over a forty-year period.
In sentence after sentence, page after page, readers are offered brilliant perceptions and unusual insights into everyday life in America and the life of the mind.
Moving from political figures like Roosevelt and Khrushchev to artists like Mozart, Dostoevsky, and John Cheever, from New York and Chicago to Paris—and including the deeply personal “Autobiography of Ideas”—Bellow records the enduring thoughts and opinions of a lifetime of observation, thoughts that speak to us with renewed energy for our times.
“Sentence by sentence, page by page, Bellow is simply the best writer we have.” - The New York Times Book Review
