Starting Out in Chicago

James Atlas

‘Dangling Man was his M.A., Bellow liked to say; The Victim was his Ph.D.‘

James Atlas began work on his biography of Saul Bellow shortly after writing an article for the New York Review of Books on Bellow’s college friend, the writer Isaac Rosenberg. Bellow (2000) was published by Random House. He is also the author of Delmore Schwartz: The Life of an American Poet, which was nominated for the National Book Award.
