Saul Bellow's birthday today

He died just a little over two months ago, and I think Nels may have mentioned his passing.

I haven't read much of Saul Bellow in a long time, but Henderson The Rain King was one of the first "adult" books I ever read that wasn't an assigned reading. Although I'm sure I didn't understand it all at the time, I do remember that it thoroughly entertained me and launched me into the world of the good stuff, and I'm very thankful for that.

So, thank you, Saul.

Hi, what an interesting website. The two hobbies that are consuming my life right now are running and reading. Just finished Henderson the Rain King actually. It was a great read.
