The tenth novel by Nobel and Pulitzer Prize - winning author Saul Bellow.
Kenneth Trachtenberg, an eccentric and witty native of Paris, travels to the Midwest to spend time with his famous American uncle, a world-renowned botanist and self-described "plant visionary". After numerous affairs and failed relationships, the restless Uncle Benn seeks a settled existence in the form of marriage - but tying the knot again opens the door to a host of new torments. Benn's erotic tendencies and disastrous relationships lead him and Kenneth into a hilarious and wonderful romp through America's mind-body dilemma - a journey in which Kenneth must also examine his own shortcomings with women.
Philosophical and humorous, More Die of Heartbreak mercilessly examines the inner workings of a man in desperate pursuit of happiness.
