Che cosa è più appassionante : i romanzi o la vita? Difficile a dirsi...

Perhaps the best biography that I have read. Bellow provides a life full of stories and challenges and Atlas matches his wit and verve. While it is natural to find something at odds with a piece of scholarship such as this, I will reserve my comments for admiration and respect. ( )
