Description

Saul Bellow’s chronicles of post-war American Jewish life have influenced generations of readers and writers alike. In the first documentary about Bellow’s work, life, and legacy, Asaf Galay (The Muses of Isaac Bashevis Singer, BJFF 2015) presents previously restricted footage and interviews with Bellows’ family and writers like Salman Rushdie, Philip Roth, and Martin Amis. This examination of Bellow's influence on American literature and his role as a public figure dealing with issues of race, gender, and the immigrant experience, makes this a must-see for any Bellow reader.
