A Cynthia Ozick Reader Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[Ozick's] range of influences is obvious in the fine selections of poems and short stories as well as essays from Art and Ardor (1983) and Metaphor and Memory (1989) that Kauvar has so sensitively chosen." --Booklist

"[This collection reflects] the imaginative, inventive, and insightful Ozick. Some of the best of Ozick as poet, essayist, and fiction writer is represented in A Cynthia Ozick Reader." --Library Journal

"Gathered here are some bristling, incandescent tales and thorny essays that show Ozick at her finest." --The Seattle Times

Cynthia Ozick is among the ten most important writers in North America today. This Reader brings her manifold talents together in a sampler of the many genres she explores. The poems, stories, and essays in this collection burst with all the energy of her capacious imagination. For those who have always lauded her, the Reader offers a representative selection; those new to Cynthia Ozick's work will revel in the discovery of a major writer.

Synopsis:

Cynthia Ozick is on anybody's list of the ten most important writers in North American today. But she has yet to have her 'break out' book or to achieve anything that remotely approaches a readership commensurate with her talent. This Reader seeks to bring her manifold talents to a wider audience. The poems, stories, and essays in this collection exemplify the energy and capaciousness that characterize her imagination.
