Him with His Foot in His Mouth, and Other Stories is a collection of short fiction from one of the most influential authors of the twentieth century. In the title piece, a musicologist awaiting extradition in British Columbia reflects on the events of his past that led to his criminal offense-beginning with a thoughtless insult he'd given over thirty years earlier. "What Kind of Day Did You Have?" explores the humorous conflicts in a single day in the lives of a divorcée and her lovers. Reanimating the Chicago of the past as only Bellow can, "Zetland: By a Character Witness" tells the story of the early life of a brilliant but eccentric artist. In "A Silver Dish" a man mourning his father recalls his memories of their relationship. And in "Cousins" a successful man is drawn into his cousin's life of criminal activities. Witty and at times emotional, Him with His Foot in His Mouth, and Other Stories is a must-have collection for all Bellow fans.
