Roy Hobbs, the protagonist of The Natural, makes the mistake of pronouncing aloud his dream: to be the best there ever was. Such hubris, of course, invites divine intervention, but the brilliance of Bernard Malamud's novel is the second chance it offers its hero, elevating him--and his story--into the realm of myth.About the Author:
Bernard Malamud was born to Russian immigrant parents in Brooklyn, New York, in 1914. His story collection, The Magic Barrel, won the National Book Award in 1958. The Fixer, a novel, won him another National Book Award in 1967, as well as the Pulitzer Prize. His other books include The Tenants, A New Life, Dubin's Lives, The Assistant, and The Natural, which was made into a highly successful motion picture directed by Barry Levinson and starring Robert Redford.
