Bellow won the 1965 National Book Award for this book. In concluding his acceptance speech, Bellow said," We live in a technological age which seems insurmountably hostile to the artist. He must fight for his life, for his freedom, along with everyone else -- for justice and equality, threatened by mechanization and bureaucracy. This is not to advise the novelist to rush immediately into the political sphere. But in the first stage he must begin to exert his intelligence, long unused. If he is to reject politics, he must understand what he is rejecting. He must begin to think, and to think not merely of his own narrower interests and needs." (Inventory #: 004679)
