The Adventures of Augie March by Saul Bellow 


Vintage paperback in very good condition.  Clean, tight and still unread copy with some light wear / signs of age.

A penniless and parentless Chicago boy growing up in the Great Depression, Augie March drifts through life latching onto a wild succession of occupations, including butler, thief, dog-washer, sailor and salesman.

He is a ‘born recruit’, easily influenced by others who try and mould his destiny. Not until he tangles with the glamorous Thea, a huntress with a trained eagle, can he attempt to break free.

A modern day Everyman on an odyssey in search of reality and identity, Augie March is the star performer in Bellow’s exuberant, richly observed human variety show.
