9780140024876: Idiots First

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.

Review:

'In Mr Malamud we may indeed salute a new American writer of power and originality.' -- Daily Telegraph

ĎThe accent of a hard-won and individual emotional truth is always heard in Malamudís words.' -- Saul Bellow

From the Publisher:

Both as a novelist and as a writer of short stories, Bernard Malamud was one of the foremost writers of his generation. Idiots First is the second volume of his stories to be published.
