"In Augie March, Bellow produced an immigrant novel in an utterly different mold from that of Henry Roth’s dreamy and impacted Call It Sleep or James T. Farrell’s jazzy, brash Studs Lonigan. If there were a companion book to Augie March it would have to be Invisible Man, by Bellow’s close friend Ralph Ellison."
