“SEIZE THE DAY. With Three Short Stories And A One-Act Play.” By Saul Bellow.

Saul Bellow (1915 – 2005) was a Canadian-born American writer. Bellow won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1976 "for the human understanding and subtle analysis of contemporary culture that are combined in his work". In the 70-minute address he gave to an audience in Stockholm, Sweden, Bellow called on writers to be “beacons for civilization and awaken it from intellectual torpor”. For his literary contributions, Bellow was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, the Nobel Prize for Literature, and the National Medal of Arts. He is the only writer to win the National Book Award for Fiction three times and he received the Foundation's lifetime Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters in 1990.
