Journal Entry 1 by weiterferne from Houston, Texas USA on Friday, November 15, 2013
From the back cover:
This is the story of Moses Herzog, a great sufferer, joker, mourner, and charmer. Although his life steadily disintegrates around him-he has failed as a writer and teacher, as a father, and has lost the affection of his wife to his best friend-Herzog sees himself as a survivor, both of his private disasters and those of the age. He writes unsent letters to friends and enemies, colleagues and famous people, revealing his wry perception of the world and the innermost secrets of his heart.

Journal Entry 2 by weiterferne at Houston, Texas USA on Friday, November 15, 2013
The author is a Nobel price winner of literature and as I am reading one book of each author I stuck with this one.

The main character muses for over 300 pages about his life and his divorce feeling pity for himself. Boring and a drag to read through in my opinion.
