Mr. Sammler's Planet by Saul Bellow

"Mr. Sammler's Planet" is a novel that centers around Artur Sammler, a Holocaust survivor living in New York City. Sammler, an intellectual, attempts to reconcile his experiences during the war with the realities of 1960s America, which he views as a society consumed by materialism and lacking in moral clarity. The novel explores themes of survival, the human condition, and the struggle to maintain dignity and integrity in a world that often seems devoid of both.
