Saul Bellow is the only author to have received three National Book Awards, for The Adventures of Augie March, Herzog, and Mr. Sammlers Planet, in addition to both the Pulitzer and Nobel prizes. The Sunday Times praised these achievements when it revered "Bellows oeuvre [as] both timeless and ruthlessly contemporary."
