Saul Bellow, Dad

This seems like an important life skill, in its own way:

When [Saul] Bellow's son Greg was 2, Mr. Leader writes, "Bellow taught him to point first to his ass, then to his elbow, declaring him 'Smarter than most Harvard graduates.'"
As it turns out, Greg Bellow wrote a memoir of his life with his father. It came out last year.
