Review Text

"A feast of language, situations, characters, ironies, and a controlled moral intelligence . . . Bellow's rapport with his central character seems to me novel writing in the grand style of a Tolstoy-subjective, complete, heroic." -Chicago Tribune
"Herzog has the range, depth, intensity, verbal brilliance, and imaginative fullness-the mind and heart-which we may expect only of a novel that is unmistakably destined to last." -Newsweek

"A masterpiece" -The New York Times Book Review
