890. Bernard Malamud, 1914–

In much of his fiction Malamud has drawn heavily upon his familiarity with Jewish culture, traditions, and folkways in America. The social implications of his work are by no means limited to a single ethnic group, however. His first novel, The Natural, was published in 1952. The critical response to this comic treatment of a baseball hero’s attempt to achieve the American dream was mixed. He received the 1959 National Book Award for The Magic Barrel (1958), a volume of short stories, and has since won other prizes as well as popular acclaim for his novels and short stories.
