Saul Bellow’s Heart: A Son’s Memoir [7.18.2013]

After author Saul Bellow’s death in 2005, his son Greg began to appreciate how conflicted his father had become and the toll writing had taken on him. Also: A whale singing at an unusual frequency roams the Pacific Ocean year after year, calling out with the regularity of a metronome, but never hearing a response; and essayist and novelist Andrew Lam on meeting his hero, fiction writer Russell Banks.
