“A cause for celebration...Ravelstein is rich,
deep, and unnervingly entertaining.”—The
New York Times Book Review. Bellow’s new
novel is a journey through love and memory,
an elegy to friendship and lives well (or badly)
lived. Over the course of a celebratory and
lavish trip to Paris two friends share their
thoughts on mortality, philosophy and history,
loves and friendships, old and new, and
vaudeville routines from the remote past.
“Bellow, the undisputed emperor of the
American sentence, can still make us honorably feel things....Ravelstein is his best book in
years.”—The New York Observer. “His voice
has the meticulous range and certainty of a
cathedral choir. The wit is exquisitely mannered; the intelligence both fearless and
elegant.”—The Boston Globe. 240 pp.
