I hadn't really meant to read this, but when I looked at the first page, I thought the writing was arrestingly direct and good. But while there are moments of wonderful writing here, the stories as a whole felt overlong and tired. Finishing this book was a bit of a chore. Read full review

About the author (1983)

Long regarded as one of the country's foremost literary luminaries, CYNTHIA OZICK attracts as much praise for her morally rigorous essays as for her satirically witty fiction. Counted among her impressive works of fiction are "The Shawl" (1989), which won an O. Henry Prize for both short stories that comprise it. She is a Man Booker International Prize nominee as well as a National Book Critics Circle Award winner.

Ozick was born and raised in Brooklyn, graduated from New York University, and regularly writes for the "New Yorker", the "New York Times Magazine", and the "New York Times Book Review".
