About the book:

"Simply the best writer we have." (The New York Times Book Review)

Viking's publication of Saul Bellow's most recent novel, Ravelstein, was an event that garnered unanimous critical acclaim and placed its author back in the spotlight as one of America's literary treasures. Now, for the first time ever, here is a collection of shorter works chosen by Bellow himself: favorite stories that follow the arc of his distinguished career. Collected Fiction gathers together stories from Mosby's Memoirs, Him with His Foot in His Mouth, and Something to Remember Me By, as well as an early story that to date has appeared only in Esquire magazine. This volume contains a preface by Bellow's wife, Janis, and an introduction by James Wood and includes celebrated stories such as "Leaving the Yellow House" and "What Kind of Day Did You Have?" and the novella The Bellarosa Connection. Throughout, Bellow's trademark theme of self-awakening, his stunning ability to re-create a bygone Chicago, and his unique comic wisdom are magnificently illustrated. This collection is both a handsome anthology Bellow's avid readers will treasure and a superb introduction to those unacquainted with his genius.
