In the best literary tradition, Bernard Malamud uses the particular experiences of his subjects-Eastern European Jews, immigrant Americans, and urban African Americans-to express the universal. This book offers an exploration of this beloved American writer's fiction, which has won two National Book Awards and a Pulitzer Prize. In addition to the literary studies, personal recollections by son Paul Malamud, memoirs and portraits by good friends, colleagues, and fellow writers such as Cynthia Ozick, Daniel Stern, and Nicolas Delbanco illuminate Malamud's life and work. The contributors reveal that in an age that deconstructs, Malamud's voice does not. Instead, it speaks clearly and imaginatively with the weight of ancient traditions and the understanding of modern conditions.About the Author:
Evelyn Avery is Professor of English and Coordinator of Jewish Studies at Towson University. She is the author of Rebels and Victims: The Fiction of Richard Wright and Bernard Malamud.
