Abstract:

Harriet Wasserman presents a rare, intimate portrait of Saul Bellow, one of the leading figures of American letters, drawing from her thirty years with him as his literary agent and friend.

Wasserman, who spoke to Bellow nearly every day during these years, lets us into a special relationship where she was not only Bellow's first reader and first-hand observer of his art, but also witness and trusted friend to the Saul Bellow behind the pages, seeing him: "stand on his head, hop on one booted foot up a mountain road, play the violin, dance the irish jig, make blueberry jam, shine the kitchen and bathroom with Formula 409, iron his pants after being caught in a downpour, accept the Nobel prize, and converse endlessly on every level about Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Marx Brothers, the Chicago Bulls, Dr. Ruth, tattoos and lip rings, beta-carotene, ethics, and on and on and on."
