Saul Bellow: Ravelstein

Category BookReview

On the fiction side of things, have just got done reading Saul Bellow's Ravelstein. Loved it. Very insightful and humor served in no small measure. An intelligent read touching upon subjects as varied as plato-speak to after-life to death to love to paris...u name it. Highly recommend it.

Has pearls of wisdom splattered all around, however to pick a few:

"Looking is the job description, existence is the job."

"Associate with the noblest people you can find; read the best book; live with the mighty; but learn to be happy alone."

"Saul Bellow: Ravelstein"
