This is a tale of two men: Hero, a Jew of course and a one-time acquaintance of a now Down-and-out. Both are from the wide world of publishing (of sorts). Hero, the victim, is being stalked by Down-and-out who, in turn, alleges to have been victimized by Hero. That is why he is now down-and out. Neither does much to alleviate this; there merely antagonize one another. Eventually they even co-habit, of sorts. Strange bedfellows! Could it be that each is really a victim of himself? Resolution? Yes and no. Good writing, but this is Bellow, isnt it. Always a treat. Situation: abnormal.
