ABSTRACT
The article discusses the book "The Adventure of Augie March," by Saul Bellow. It is a rich fascinating and important book. If such a novel is to be fully effective the sense of improvisation must be a dramatic illusion, the last sophistication of the writer, and that the sense of improvisation is really a pseudo improvisation and that the random scene or casual character that imitates the accidental quality of life must really have a relevance and that the discovery, usually belated, of this relevance is the characteristic excitement of the genre.
