It is impossible to say whether Malamudís world is comic or tragic. Like the real world it is always both, and he can be very funny as well as profoundly touching. At the most hilarious and ludicrous climax there is a shadow of sadness: in the moment of a manís total failure, the truth and dignity of a human being suddenly appear, and often laughter as well.
