William Dublin is middle-aged, a distinguished biographer seeking increased accomplishment and the key to his inner feelings. His marriage is stable if unexciting, and he lives comfortably with his wife in Vermont. Then his imagination is caught by Fanny, a young girl of twenty-three, and he is thrown into an intense, erotic love affair that threatens to destroy his measured, disciplined world and the lives of those around him.

Review:

"Bernard Malamud has one of the greatest of a novelist's gifts. One believes everything he says...Dubin's Lives is another of his unaffected successes" (Financial Times)

"Masterly and hypnotic...I can't recall a more tender portrait of a marriage, or a more beautifully incisive, exact and well-judged chronicle of the longings - not just, but chiefly, erotic - that can owrry away at such a bond" (Observer)

"A rich book, generous in what it offers, a work that significantly extends the range of one of America's finest writers" (New York Times Book Review)

Book Description:

The story of a crisis and a love affair, from the great American 20th century novelist
