I. Artur Sammler with his bushy eye took in the books and papers of his West Side bedroom and suspected strongly that they were the wrong books, the wrong papers. In a way it did not matter much to a man of seventy-plus, and at leisure.
Mr has been added to your Cart. I originally read this in 1970 while in college. I especially liked Mr. Sammler's (Saul Bellow's) observation on life in NYC at a time when it was all falling apart around them
Mr has been added to your Cart. Sammler's (Saul Bellow's) observation on life in NYC at a time when it was all falling apart around them. NYC went bankrupt in 1973 for some of the very reasons he tries to relate to in his own life. I bought it to read again, and now that I am nearer his age, the insights are even more astute for any student of twentieth century history.
Sammler's Planet book. Just finished reading "Mr. Sammler's Planet" by Saul Bellow. An enduring testament and prophecy. Chicago Sun-Times M. . It is a beautiful story of a holocaust survivor, who relives his horrors in the holocaust of his daily life in New York in his late age.

A quintessential book from a Nobel prize winner.
Who is Mr. Sammler? A Jewish intellectual educated in Western philosophy, a one-eyed Holocaust survivor, the . Sammler? A Jewish intellectual educated in Western philosophy, a one-eyed Holocaust survivor, the future author of the greatest biography ever written of . With his inimitable tragicomic mastery Saul Bellow delves once again, and the reader with him, into a contemporary and chaotic universe in which the most profound reflections on the meaning of life mingle with the absurd, histrionic, endless minutiae of the every day.
Sammler’s Planet is not a Holocaust novel ; it is, emphatically, a novel about its own time and place, New York during the summer of the moon landing. But by viewing that cultural moment through the eyes of Artur Sammler, a Polish-born Holocaust survivor living in New York, Bellow ensures that the 1930s hover behind the 1960s as a ghost and menacing prophecy. Bellow elides the contradiction somewhat by making Sammler a very untypical Polish Jew. We learn that he spent most of the interwar years as a journalist in London, palling around with English intellectuals and the Bloomsbury set. Fiction.
