Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

The Adventures of Augie March
Saul Bellow


The fictional autobiography of a rumbustious adventurer and poker-player who sets off his native Chicago in the spirit of a latter-day Columbus to rediscover the world-and more especially, twentieth-century America. This expansive comedy of American manners in the tradition of Twain’s Innocent Abroad is a major classic of twentieth-century American literature. It won the National Book Award for Fiction in 1953.
