Review:

"[Malamud has allowed] an utterly credible man to be victimized by all the painful and humiliating abuses the most abused anti-hero might be subjected to and he has brought him out of the fire not dehumanized by more fully and authentically a human being. With complete and passionate integrity he is denying one of the most paralyzing fears of our times: that individual goodness cannot survive the evils of history....It is as convincing and affecting an act of grace as the American novel has seen in a long time. In discussing 'The Fixer' it is easy to turn the book into a moralistic abstract. That would be a misrepresentation. These pages are as thick and pungent as a piece of black bread, with [a] special Chekhovian texture....It cannot help but make an impact on the American literature scene."

Melvin Maddocks, Christian Science Monitor, 09/08/1966

Review:

"[T]he main success of the novel lies in the creation of Bok, free of any false pathos or any false grandeur...a kind of Jewish everyman....In 'The Fixer', Malamud has demonstratively staked a claim in the territory of the great 'classical' novelists."

Donald Fanger, Nation, 10/17/1966
