A collection of treasured stories by the unchallenged master of American fiction
Nobel Prize winner Saul Bellow has deservedly been celebrated as one of America's greatest writers. For more than 60 years he stretched our minds, our imaginations, and our hearts with his exhilarating perceptions of life. Here, collected in one volume and chosen by the author himself, are favorites such as "What Kind of Day Did You Have?", "Leaving the Yellow House", and a previously uncollected piece, "By the St. Lawrence". With his larger-than-life characters, irony, wisdom, and unique humor, Bellow presents a sharp, rich, and funny world that is infinitely surprising. With a preface by Janice Bellow and an introduction by James Wood, this is a collection to treasure for longtime Saul Bellow fans and an excellent introduction for new listeners.

Good, but with a big caveat
A fine assortment of short-to-medium-length stories, and some novellae, from Saul Bellow; it provides another side to his fiction that readers of the more famous books might have missed. The variety of readers adds to things. One big issue, however: only half of the novella 'What Kind of Day Did You Have?' is here, as it suddenly stops midway through before moving on to the next story. The remainder (twelve stories of different lengths, along with preface, introduction & afterword) are present in their entirety, & recorded well.
