Inhaltsangabe

Abe Ravelstein is a famously iconoclastic university professor who has died from AIDS; his close friend Chick is writing a memoir about him. As the story unfolds, we hear Ravelstein's (and Chick's) complex, challenging, often uproarious thoughts on mortality, history, art, sex, even vaudeville routines from the distant past. At the same time, we are drawn into a beautifully nuanced portrait of a rare and fascinating friendship. Deeply insightful and always moving, Ravelstein is an unforgettable journey through love and memory.

As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of Saul Bellow's book, you'll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview – where James Atlas interviews Azar Nafisi about the life and work of Saul Bellow – begins as soon as the audiobook ends.

Kritikerstimmen

"This book rings with laughter and joy....Ravelstein is an extraordinary character ." (The Washington Post)
"No contemporary of ours is more consistently brilliant and more defiantly risky than Saul Bellow." (The New York Times Book Review)
"His voice has the meticulous range and certainty of a cathedral choir. The wit is exquisitely mannered; the intelligence both fearless and elegant." (The Boston Globe)
"Amply rewarding, this late work from the Nobel laureate flourishes his inimitable linguistic virtuosity, combining intimations of mortality with gossipy tattle in a biting and enlightening narrative." (Publishers Weekly)
