THE ADVENTURES OF SAUL BELLOW

For most of his adult life, Saul Bellow was the most acclaimed novelist in America and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, three National Book Awards, and the Pulitzer Prize. The Adventures of Saul Bellow is the first-ever documentary film on Saul Bellow, the man described as the "greatest of American prose stylists in the 20th century." Marking the centennial of his birth and the tenth anniversary of his death, this film features original interviews with Bellow's family, close friends, and writers inspired by him. Bellow's revolutionary impact on American literature is examined as are his many identities as a writer, debater, 'serial husband,' father, Chicagoan, Jew, and American. The film highlights a previously underestimated element of Bellow's life and work: his humor. Bellow's satire and scalding wit reflected his joy and commitment to life, but also his belief that the world was marked by disorder and unruliness.
