In the last stage of his unparalleled career - which included winning the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1976 - Saul Bellow remained an uproarious comic storyteller, a provocative thinker deeply engaged with the intellectual cross-currents of his time, and a magnificent prose stylist. Gathered here are four shorter works - What Kind Of Day Did You Have? (1984), A Theft (1989), The Bellarosa Connection (1989), and The Actual (1997) - along with More Die of Heartbreak (1987) and Bellow's extraordinary valedictory, Ravelstein.
