Product description

"An essential masterwork by Nobel laureate Saul Bellow-- now with an introduction by J. M. Coetzee" Expecting to be inducted into the army to fight in World War II, Joseph has given up his job and carefully prepared for his departure to the battlefront. When a series of mix-ups delays his induction, he finds himself facing a year of idleness. Saul Bellow's first novel documents Joseph's psychological reaction to his inactivity while war rages around him and his uneasy insights into the nature of freedom and choice. For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.

Review quote

"One of the most honest pieces of testimony on the psychology of a whole generation who have grown up during the Depression and the war," -Edmund Wilson, "The New Yorker" "In this imaginative journal, set against fresh and vivid scenes in Chicago, the author has outlined what must seem to many others an uncannily accurate delineation of themselves." -"The New York Times" "An extraordinary first novel." -"The Observer"
