Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

A trio of short works by the Nobel laureate and "greatest writer of American prose of the twentieth century" (James Wood, "The New Republic")

While Saul Bellow is known best for his longer fiction in award-winning novels such as "The Adventures of Augie March" and "Herzog," "Something to Remember Me By" will draw new readers to Bellow as it showcases his extraordinary gift for creating memorable characters within a smaller canvas.

The loss of a ring in "A Theft" helps an oft-married woman understand her own wisdom and capacity for love. In "The Bellarosa Connection," Harry Fonstein has escaped from Nazi brutality with the help of an underground organization masterminded by the legendary Broadway impresario Billy Rose, and his story continues in America . In the title story, seventeen-year-old Louie--whose mother is dying of cancer--strays far from home and finds not solace but humiliation and, ultimately, the blessing of his father's wrath.
