Short Story Discussion, “The Old System”, with Isaak Kruger
Originally published in Playboy in January 1968, Some consider this the best of Saul Bellow’s short stories. Dr. (Samuel) Braun is visiting his dying sister, Tina, in the hospital. The two siblings had had a fight and subsequent falling out many years prior, and Tina has only agreed to let her brother into her hospital room if he pays her thirty thousand dollars. Dr. Braun comes with the money, but Tina refuses it, instead offering her brother their mother’s ring off her finger as she lays dying. Copies of “The Old System” are available in the Meyers Library.
