"The Assistant", by Pulitzer Prize-recipient Bernard Malamud, is considered an American literary classic. A real find for lovers of literature, praised by the Jewish Theological Seminary and Jewish Book World.From the Back Cover:
Bernard Malamud was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. on April 26, 1914, the son of Jewish immigrants from Russia. By his death in 1986, he had won the Pulitzer Prize and twice won the National Book Award and his books (such as "The Fixer", "The Natural") and stories (such as "The Angel Levine," "The Jewbird") had become American classics. "The Assistant," published in 1957, represents this great writer's belief in the noble drama of everyday lives and the universality of the Jewish experience.
George Guidall, winner of the 1999 "AUDIE", the audio publishing industry's highest honor, has recorded more than 500 books on tape. They range from Dostoyevsky's "Crime and Punishment" to present-day best sellers. He has also spent 30 years in the theater as an actor, director and teacher. He replaced Eli Wallach in "Caf Crown" and played the lead in Neil Simon's "Chapter Two." Television audiences have frequently seen Mr. Guidall on "Law and Order."
