    Das Leben meint es nicht gut mit Moses Elkanah Herzog. Schon die zweite Ehefrau lässt ihn sitzen, zu allem Übel auch noch zugunsten seines besten Freundes, die Universitätskarriere stagniert und auch die selbstverordnete Europareise bringt keine Erleichterung. Herzog steckt fest. In seiner Verzweiflung schreibt er Briefe an Philosophen - lebende wie tote -, an Freunde, an Gott.

    Saul Bellow evokes all the rich colors and exotic customs of a highly imaginary Africa in this acclaimed comic novel about a middle-aged American millionaire who, seeking a new, more rewarding life, descends upon an African tribe. Henderson's awesome feats of strength and his unbridled passion for life win him the admiration of the tribe - but it is his gift for making rain that turns him from mere hero into messiah. A hilarious, often ribald story, Henderson the Rain King is also a profound look at the forces that drive a man through life.

    Fading charmer Tommy Wilhelm has reached his day of reckoning and is scared. In his forties, he still retains a boyish impetuousness that has brought him to the brink of chaos: he is separated from his wife and children; at odds with his vain, successful father; failed in his acting career (a Hollywood agent once placed him as “the type that loses the girl”); and in a financial mess.

His close friend Chick has suggested that he put forth a book of his convictions about the ideas that sustain humankind, or kill it, and much to Ravelstein’s own surprise, he does and becomes a millionaire.
