The Complete Stories by Bernard Malamud

New York Times Notable Book of the Year

Publishers Weekly Best Book of 1997

With an Introduction by Robert Giroux, The Complete Stories of Bernard Malamud is "an essential American book," Richard Stern declared in the Chicago Tribune when the collection was published in hardcover. His praise was echoed by other reviewers and by readers, who embraced the book as they might a displaced person in one of Malamud's stories, now returned to us, complete and fulfilled and recognized at last. The volume gathers together fifty-five stories, from "Armistice" (1940) to "Alma Redeemed" (1984), and including the immortal stories from The Magic Barrel and the vivid depictions of the unforgettable Fidelman. It is a varied and generous collection of great examples of the modern short story, which Malamud perfected, and an ideal introduction to the work of this great American writer.

It takes only a few unforgettable stories to make a great storywriter. And there among these stories those few , including 'The Magic Barrel'and 'The Jewbird' Malamud's low-key precision, his eye and ear pitched at a delicate level ,his unique Yiddish English dialect,his capacity for creating memorable character his preoccupation with and sympathy for suffering Jews and suffering humanity all combine to make him one of the finest short story writers America has ever known. A highly recommended work too for anyone who wishes to know the tribulations and sufferings of the sensitive soul, the artist in the modern world.
