Ozicks Strikes Deep
Novels serve the reader in more ways than one. They may entertain and divert. They may amuse or excite. This recent work by Cynthia Ozick delivers in all these ways, but, more important, it is also informative and challenging. Her characters do not appear in other books and they are not stereotypes. Instead, they represent in their own ways, a search, often apparently misdirected for a mission and a meaning. They struggle for self mastery against overwhelming forces. Their adventures and conflicts commend our attention and our sympathy. Not every reader will have the patience and the curiosity ro handle this book, but those who do so will be rewarded for their effort. Ozick is a keen critic of our culture and a truly beautiful mind.
