My favorite is Humbolt's Gift. Nice and extravagant. Augie March is too old-school realistic for my taste. A good short read is Seize the Day, though the main character is rather pathetic. Joseph Cowley

Saul Bellow is a writer with a difference . His novels dont analyse the American society but probes individual disorder and evaluates the battered psyche imposed on the fallen and bruised minds . Herzog is a classic tale of the disintegration of the individual mind that reels under the impact of a chaotic social structure. it is also suggestive of the inherent social tension that creeps into a system apparently settled .Bellow is perfectely balanced and writes with investigative zeal.It is advisable to make this book a part of every sensible academic syllabus that includes fiction.
