Dave Eggers letter to Saul Bellow

In this letter from 2001, author Dave Eggers tells Saul Bellow about how he drew upon “Herzog,” “Henderson the Rain King” and “Humboldt’s Gift” as inspiration. He writes: “Your work makes me feel that what we see and hear in our heads, all of its rich, multi-layered chaos, can be translated to the page.” (Courtesy of Special Collections Research Center, The University of Chicago Library)
