Cynthia Ozick is on anybody's list of the ten most important writers in North American today. But she has yet to have her 'break out' book or to achieve anything that remotely approaches a readership commensurate with her talent. This Reader seeks to bring her manifold talents to a wider audience. The poems, stories, and essays in this collection exemplify the energy and capaciousness that characterize her imagination.
