Reading Saul Bellow

Saul Bellow was one of the lions of American literature in the 20th century, and Chris Walsh served as his student, friend, mentee and amanuensis for several years late in Bellow's life. What was it like to be so close to someone who produced such amazing works as "The Adventures Of Augie March," "Henderson The Rain King," "Humboldt's Gift," "Herzog" and many more?
