HerzogDownloadable Audiobook - 2007
An instant classic when it appeared in 1964, Herzog is the story of Moses E. Herzog, a tragically confused intellectual who suffers from the breakup of his second marriage, the general failure of his life, and the specter of growing up Jewish in the middle part of the 20th century. He responds to his personal crisis by writing a series of letters never to be sent, to friends and enemies, colleagues and celebrities, examining his life and times with wry perception and heartfelt revelation. Seeing himself as a survivor of disasters both private and of the age, Herzog cannot keep from asking what he calls the "piercing" questions. The answers he finds will matter not only to him but to the listeners of this magnificent novel.
