About the Author

Bernard Malamud (1914 - 1986) wrote eight novels; he won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for The Fixer and the National Book Award for The Magic Barrel, a collection of stories. Born in Brooklyn, he taught for many years at Bennington College in Vermont.

Reviews

"Malamud has written a moving, funny, satiric third novel ... rich in ideas, paradox and the variety of human nature... Levin is one of the most appealingly, sadly, funnily human people in recent fiction and A New Life is a wonderful book." --Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

"The special qualities of Bernard Malamud's fiction which set it apart as serious art ... are its evocation of genuine pity for the calamities which overtake men, its scrupulous and deft playing of an ironic attitude against this pity, and its insistently moral structuring of event." --The New York Times
