Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"Sooner or later, I suppose, some one of our generation had to attempt to write a serious novel about baseball....I think, therefore, that it is unfortunate that 'The Natural', which is a serious novel about baseball, should have been written by a man who seems to be completely a captive of the present fashionable cult of the obscure. Bernard Malamud's novel is a troubled mixture of fantasy and realism in which the fantasy is fantastic enough, but the realism is not very real."

J.J. Maloney, New York Herald Tribune Book Review, 8/24/52

Review:

"It's an unusually fine novel although I don't know how the professionals are going to take it. For Bernard Malamud's interests go far beyond baseball. What he has done is to contrive a sustained and elaborate allegory in which the 'natural' player--who operates with ease and the greatest skill, without having been taught--is equated with the natural man who, left alone by, say, politicians and advertising agencies, might achieve his real fulfullment....A brilliant and unusual book."

Harry Sylvester, New York Times Book Review, 8/24/52
