Today in Tablet Magazine, contributing editor Jonathan Wilson provides a double-whammy on the occasion of the publication of Saul Bellow’s letters: He reviews them, wallowing in “a gone world when literature was all the rage;” and he interviews Janis Bellow, the novelist’s widow, who confirms that Bellow wrote not for posterity but for the moment. Adam Kirsch praises Gal Beckerman’s history of the movement to rescue Soviet Jewry. The Scroll would remind its readers that Bellow is in one way the patron saint of Tablet Magazine and its predecessor, He once said, “We are always looking for the book it is necessary to read next.”
