Review

A masterpiece. --New York Times Book Review

The book is a feast of language, situations, characters, ironies, and a controlled moral intelligence that transcends the fact that we are spectators at a hard luck story. Bellow s rapport with his central character seems to me novel writing in the grand style of a Tolstoi subjective, complete, heroic....Eventually Moses Herzog becomes as natural an American phenomenon as the faces carved on Mount Rushmore. --Chicago Tribune

Herzog has the range, depth, intensity, verbal brilliance, and imaginative fullness the mind and heart which we may expect only of a novel that is unmistakably destined to last. --Newsweek
