A special edition of The Book Programme in which Robert Robinson talks to the American writer Saul Bellow at his home in Chicago.
Bellow, who is 60 this year, is the author of Herzog and Henderson the Rain King and is, for many, the greatest novelist writing in the United States since the war. He talks in this programme about his books, his way of working, critics and the problems of a writer: ' It's very hard to be the Ancient Mariner and to stop the wedding guest and hold him with your glittering eye. Your eye has to glitter ten times as hard as in the 19th century to compete with the media and news stories and sensationalism.'
