Saul Bellow’s Heart: A Son’s Memoir

Produced by

Greg Bellow grew up in the shadow of a famous father, Nobel Prize winning writer Saul Bellow.  For most of their time together the relationship was contentious and their views often clashed, but Greg Bellow says that after his father’s death in 2005, he began to understand how conflicted his father had become as an older man, and he began to appreciate the toll writing had taken on his father’s life.
