From the description of Saul Bellow drafts of nobel lecture, 1976-1977. (Unknown). WorldCat record id: 702194195

Author Saul Bellow was born in Montreal to Russian emigre parents; when he was nine, the family moved to Chicago, where Bellow was educated at the University of Chicago and Northwestern in Sociology and Anthropology. He began writing novels, and gradually built a respected body of work that saw him recognized as one of the most celebrated novelists of his day. His works often feature Jewish protagonists, and explore the survival of the human spirit in an increasingly dehumanizing world; his prose style is highly original and employs both humor and tragedy. He has won multiple National Book Awards and the Pulitzer Prize. Bellow has also had a long teaching career at several universities.
