"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
"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."
"A masterpiece" -The New York Times Book
