Henderson the Rain King free pdf "It blazes as fiercly and scintillatingly as a forest fire. There is life here- a great rage to live more fully. In this it is a giant among novels."(San Francisco Examiner) Saul Bellow evokes all the rich colors and exotic customs of a highly imaginary Africa in this acclaimed comic novel about a middle-aged American millionaire who, seeking a new, more rewarding life, descends upon an African tribe. Henderson s awesome feats of strength and his unbridled passion for life win him the admiration of the tribe but it is his gift for making rain that turns him from mere hero into messiah. A hilarious, often ribald story, "Henderson the Rain King" is also a profound look at the forces that drive a man through life. This Penguin Classics edition contains an introduction by Adam Kirsch.
