Product description

Tommy Wilhelm is a worried man. Once charming, he has failed to make it big as an actor in Hollywood, left his family and lost his job as a salesman. Now he lives in the Hotel Gloriana in New York City, while his successful father lectures him about changing his life. But Wilhelm clings to the hope that his luck is about to turn and has given his last $700 to the mysterious, philosophizing Dr Tamkin to invest. Is the smooth-talking Tamkin ripping Wilhelm off? Or does he offer him one last chance to make it out of this mess?

Author information

Saul Bellow is recognized as one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century. He was born in 1915 to Russian immigrant parents in Quebec, Canada. His first two novels, Dangling Man (1944) and The Victim (1947), attracted a small following, but it was his next novel, The Adventures of Augie March (1953), that put Bellow on the literary map. Bellow's other works of fiction include Herzog (1964), and Humboldt's Gift (1975, winner of the Pulitzer Prize), Ravelstein (2000). Bellow was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1976. He died in 2005.
