The novels and short stories of Bernard Malamud dominated the literary scene in the 1950’s and 60’s. Among his best known works are The Natural, The Fixer, and the Pulitzer-prize winning book The Fixer, written while Malamud was a professor at Bennington College.
Twenty years after Malamud’s death comes the first overview of his life and work, written by his daughter, Janna Malamud Smith. In the memoir My Father Is A Book, Smith paints an intimate portrait of Bernard Malamud’s private and professional life.
Janna Malamud Smith Talks with Neal Charnoff about her father and her new book.
My Father Is A Book is published by Houghton Mifflin.
