Summary
  • In Mr. Sammler's Planet, the anarchic forces of late-1960s America are set loose on Artur Sammler, a highly cultured septuagenarian and European émigré who seeks "with God, to be free from the bondage of the ordinary and the finite." A Holocaust survivor living out his latter days in Manhattan, Sammler endures the city's everyday barbarism, as shocking as it is casual, and must contend with absurd complications when a manuscript goes missing
  • Humboldt's Gift depicts the deep and troubled friendship between the tormented poet Von Humboldt Fleisher and the renowned writer Charlie Citrine. Humboldt has died in squalid obscurity, but for Citrine the memory of their earlier days persists as counterpoint to a middle age studded with difficulties: a messy divorce, a demanding mistress, and the attentions of a Chicago hoodlum who claims that Charlie has cheated him
  • In The Dean's December, Albert Corde experiences totalitarianism firsthand when he travels to Bucharest to visit his dying mother-in-law. As college dean in Chicago he has attracted controversy through his journalism and his role in a racially charged murder trial
