We didn’t starve, but we didn’t eat chicken unless we were sick, or the chicken was.–Bernard Malamud (1914-1986)


Bernard Malamud is considered one of the most prominent figures in Jewish-American literature, a movement that originated in the 1930s and is known for its tragicomic elements. Malamud’s stories and novels, in which reality and fantasy are frequently interlaced, have been compared to parables, myths, and allegories, and often illustrate the importance of moral obligation. Along with Saul Bellow and Philip Roth, he was one of the great American Jewish authors of the 20th century. His 1966 novel The Fixer, about anti-Semitism in Tsarist Russia, won both the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
