Saul Bellow’s Montreal

A rather pompous little piece in the L.A. Review of Books looks at Saul Bellow’s origins here in Montreal – or, since the writer is intent on emphasizing the city’s exoticism, Montréal, where he perambulates “Rue Roy” and “Rue Napoleon” (what, no accent-aigu?) and makes a pilgrimage to Bellow’s boyhood home in Lachine.
