“People are dying – it is no metaphor – for lack of something real to carry home when day is done.”
From Herzog, by Saul Bellow (1915-2005)

I’m Paul, a writer from Melbourne, Australia. I write about life as I find it; about life as I experience it. I’m not Herzog – anxious, grieving, broken and brooding, hiding alone in a country house, writing crazy letters to family, friends, strangers and the dead – but I do share Herzog’s view that many people are tired, harassed and hungry for something real to carry home when the working day is done. I hope to offer something real.
