Saul Bellow: A Legacy

Zachary Leader and David Herman

Jewish Book Week

Zachary Leader speaker
David Herman chair

Zachary Leader presents the second volume of The Life of Saul Bellow. Arguably the greatest of American writers, Bellow’s enduring appeal perhaps lies in his ‘gift for reading reality’.

Leader’s exhilarating biography focuses not only on the unsurpassable writing, but on the tangled and numerous love affairs, the five wives, the girlfriends, the friends, the enemies and the ‘lunatics’ who stalked him.


Zachary Leader is Professor of English at the University of Roehampton. He is the author of Reading Blake’s Songs, Writer’s Block, Revision and Romantic Authorship and The Life of Kingsley Amis. Among the books he has edited are The Letters of Kingsley Amis and On Modern British Fiction. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

David Herman was a TV producer for twenty years, working with Jeremy Isaacs and Melvyn Bragg among others, and has been a freelance writer for the past fifteen years writing 700 articles for a number of leading magazines and newspapers including The New Statesman, Prospect, The Guardian and The Independent. He is chief fiction reviewer of The Jewish Chronicle.
