Herzog is Bellow at his best, and Bellow is the best America has produced since Faulkner.
The hero, Moses Herzog, is described by one reviewer as a great sufferer, joker and moaner, cuckold, charmer, in short, a man of our time. He sees himself as a survivor, not only of his private disasters but also those of the age. Herzog cannot keep from asking what he calls the "piercing" questions. The answers he finds will matter not only to him but to readers of our age or any age. I find it difficult to stop with this review and not reread the whole, magnificent book.
