About This Item

Saul Bellow (1915 –2005) was a Canadian-American writer and academic who won the 1976 Nobel Prize, as well as a Pulitzer. He is the only writer to win the National Book Award for Fiction three times.

Bellow wrote 14 novels; More Die of Heartbreak was his 10th. It is the story of an intellectually gifted and philosophically tortured man attempting to work out his fate and worldview.

This is a first printing of the first edition, published by Viking, printed in the USA and distributed in Canada by Penguin. It is purple boards with cream trim and brilliant silver lettering on the spine.

It has never been opened—it creaked when I pulled back the front cover. Its only flaw is that someone stamped the underside with a star (see photo).


Note: If you are outside of North America, the quoted shipping price is for surface mail without tracking. For other options, please contact me.


Synopsis

More Die of Heartbreak is a 1987 novel by the American author Saul Bellow, and was his tenth novel. Like most of Bellow's other works, More Die of Heartbreak is grounded more in the development of character than in the growth of action. Among its themes are the difficulties of reconciling one's ideals with "the actual" and the difficulties of relating to parents and to mortality.
