9780099433453: Pictures Of Fidelman (Vintage Classics)

Arthur Fidelman, Bronx-born and raised, is a self-confessed failure as a painter. When he goes to Italy to prepare a critical study of Giotto, a picaresque tale of comedy and adventure ensues. Pursued through the streets of Rome by the refugee Susskind, falling into the hands of art thieves, hand-carving wooden Madonnas, becoming a pimp, attempting to sculpt the perfect hole, Fidelman is a comic creation of genius.

Review:

"A delightful piece of work, and it shows a major artist's mastery of his medium... Fidelman is a superb picaresque hero, and the novel is always entertaining, often hilariously so" ( Sunday Times)

"The accent of a hard-won and individual emotional truth is always heard in Malamud's words. He is a rich original of the first rank." (Saul Bellow)

"In Mr Malamud we may indeed salute a new American writer of power and originality. He has a wonderful sense of character and atmosphere" ( Daily Telegraph)

"One of the best writers in the English language... His work embeds itself in one's consciousness and refuses to be dislodged" ( Sunday Times)

Book Description:

Meet Arthur Fidelman: self-confessed failure, fanatic, friend, pimp, late-bloomer in love and a brilliant comic creation
