Biographie de l'auteur :

Bernard Malamud, one of America's most important novelists and short-story writers, was born in Brooklyn in 1914. He took his B.A. degree at the City College of New York and his M.A. at Colombia University. From 1940 to 1949 he taught in various New York schools, and then joined the staff of Oregon State University, where he stayed until 1961. Thereafter, he taught at Bennington State College, Vermont.

His remarkable, and uncharacteristic first novel, The Natural, appeared in 1952. Malamud received international acclaim with the publication of The Assistant (1957, winner of the Rosenthal Award and the Daroff Memorial Award). His other works include The Magic Barrel (1958, winner of the National Book Award), Idiots First (1963, short stories), The Fixer (1966, winner of a second National Book Award and a Pulitzer Prize), Pictures of Fidelman (1969), The Tenants (1971), Rembrandt's Hat (1973, short stories), Dubin's Lives (1979) and God's Grace (1982). Bernard Malamud was made a member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters, USA, in 1964, a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1967, and won a major Italian award, the Premio Mondello, in 1985. Benard Malamud died in 1986.

Revue de presse :

"A rich original of the first rank" (Saul Bellow)

"One of the best writers in the English language... His work embeds itself into one's consciousness and refuses to be dislodged" ( Sunday Times)

" The Natural by Bernard Malamud shows the agony, destruction and pathos that come often with great sports talent" (Sid Waddell, sports commentator Independent)

"This book established that we could have a serious adult baseball novel by playing with the parallels between mythical elements in the game and mythical elements in literature" ( Chicago Tribune)

"Bernard Malamud's The Natural that still leads the field [for novels about baseball]. It is one of the landmarks of a period in US fiction when Jewish novelists dominated the scene with work of the highest ambition" ( Metro)

Description du livre Farrar Straus Giroux, United States, 2003. Paperback. État : New. Reprint. 208 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The classical novel (and basis for the acclaimed film) now in a new editionIntroduction by Kevin Baker The Natural, Bernard Malamud s first novel, published in 1952, is also the first and some would say still the best novel ever written about baseball. In it Malamud, usually appreciated for his unerring portrayals of postwar Jewish life, took on very different material the story of a superbly gifted natural at play in the fields of the old daylight baseball era and invested it with the hardscrabble poetry, at once grand and altogether believable, that runs through all his best work. Four decades later, Alfred Kazin s comment still holds true: Malamud has done something which now that he has done it! looks as if we have been waiting for it all our lives. He has really raised the whole passion and craziness and fanaticism of baseball as a popular spectacle to its ordained place in mythology. N° de réf. du libraire ABZ9780374502003
