It’s a terrific biography. It’s also a first-rate piece of literary criticism. The book doesn’t really privilege the life or the fiction, or belittle the complexity of reading between them.

Masterfully tracing Bellow’s growth from precocious youth to his eventual status in the 1960s as perhaps America’s greatest living novelist, Leader fleshes out even the smallest details, yet all of these seem carefully chosen, deliberately unpacked...

Leader’s book works best when he lines up the fact and the fiction side by side, to see how well they match.
