Herzog by Saul Bellow
This multifaceted portrait of a modern-day hero is the story of Moses Herzog, a great sufferer, joker, moaner, and charmer. Although his life steadily disintegrates around him, Herzog sees himself as a survivor, both of his private disasters and those of the age.
Herzog and those close to him take on a life of their
own in the book, and the ideas about the future of civilization which
obsess him are woven carefully and skilfully into the story of his disintegration.
