The tenth novel by Nobel and Pulitzer Prize–winning author Saul Bellow

Kenneth Trachtenberg, an eccentric and witty native of Paris, travels to the Midwest to spend time with his famous American uncle, a world-renowned botanist and self-described “plant visionary.” After numerous affairs and failed relationships, the restless Uncle Benn seeks a settled existence in the form of marriage—but tying the knot again opens the door to a host of new torments. Benn’s erotic tendencies and disastrous relationships lead him and Kenneth into a hilarious and wonderful romp through America’s mind-body dilemma—a journey in which Kenneth must also examine his own shortcomings with women.

Philosophical and humorous, More Die of Heartbreak mercilessly examines the inner workings of a man in desperate pursuit of happiness.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Brilliant and funny.”

    New York Times

  • “It is Bellow’s genius that he can present a provocative novel of ideas as a riotous comedy. Ample proof that Bellow remains one of our most significant writers, the comic sage of American letters.”

    Library Journal

  • “As in all Bellow’s novels since Herzog, philosophical speculation is as important as plot, if not more so. Here Bellow dwells on the cult of sex in contemporary culture, as well as such soul-diminishing demands as the drives for power, wealth, and prestige…Serious stuff, certainly, but it is Bellow’s genius that he can present a provocative novel of ideas as a riotous comedy. Ample proof that Bellow remains one of our most significant writers, the comic sage of American letters.”

    Library Journal

  • “There are great chunks of fine, funny Bellovian rhetoric here.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • A New York Times Book Review Book of the Year
