Reviews

"An Overlooked Masterpiece ... It May Still Be Undervalued As Malamud's Funniest And Most Embracing Novel." "Malamud has written a moving, funny, satiric third novel ... rich in ideas, paradox and the variety of human nature... Levin is one of the most appealingly, sadly, funnily human people in recent fiction and "A New Life" is a wonderful book."--"Kirkus Reviews "(Starred Review) "The special qualities of Bernard Malamud's fiction which set it apart as serious art ... are its evocation of genuine pity for the calamities which overtake men, its scrupulous and deft playing of an ironic attitude against this pity, and its insistently moral structuring of event."--"The New York Times" "Malamud has written a moving, funny, satiric third novel ... rich in ideas, paradox and the variety of human nature...
