Herzog At Night

"As I lie in bed at night, letting my thoughts creep into the dimly lit places in my mind, I understand the realization Herzog reaches: that we may either torment ourselves with our own weaknesses or we may embrace them, realizing that perhaps there is not one truth that rules over all of life, but a more intimate truth that we construct from our own understanding."

- Heather Hepler re-reads Saul Bellow's Herzog and finds it as arresting as ever.
