Rogin, a father-to -be in his own lively imagination, is startled to discover himself seated in the New York subway next to his own grown son—or what he takes to be a reasonable facsimile tnereof. Dr. tfraun, the distmguished biochemist of 'TheOld System,' a man whose intellectual scope encompasses the island univers es and the molecular processes of heredity, struggles to find a place in the scheme of things for two cousins whom he loves but whose high-pitched emotionss appear to make a crude circus of human passion. George Grebe, looking tor Mr. Green at the depth of the Depression in Chicago to deliver a relief check, and Clarence Feiler, searching for the Gonzaga Manuscripts in Madrid, also collide with the unpredictable stutt that constitutes human experience. And to meet human experience in the stories of Saul Bellow is to recognize its mystery and inexhaustible fascination." - from the dj.

When he reaches the coast some weeks from now, he will board a small tramp steamer named the Comedian and sail for the Galapagos Islands. What he will do after that, no one, not even himself, has the faintest idea. When Ludwig Bemelmans first came to America he worked as a busboy in a Chinese restaurant. Some years later he was the proprietor of the Hapsburg, one of the ftnest restaurants in New York. Recently he has devoted ail the time he could spare from his wife and his daughter to writing and illustrating. Hansi and The Golden Basket are two books from his pen whose charming individuality has endeared them togrown- ups as well as to the children for whom they were made. The studio of Jascha Heifetz and the stage decor for Noah stand to his credit, as do articles, stories, and illustrations in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Town and Country, Fortune, and Story."
