Herzog Gone

The great American/Canadian/Jewish author and Nobelist Saul Bellow is dead at 89. I would like to extend special condolences to his son Adam, a friend of this blog. More later when I have a chance to gather my thoughts.

UPDATE: Here is the lengthy obit from the NYT (they were obviously prepared). It’s quite a thorough review of his literary career but curiously scanty on his personal life.
