Condition notes:
There is a small tear at the front of the dust jacket which has a few marks. The book is otherwise in very good condition

It is impossible to say whether Malamud’s 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 man’s total failure, the truth and dignity of a human being suddenly appear, and often laughter as well.
