Cynthia Ozick has been hailed as one of the greatest American story writers today. Born in New York in 1928, she is renowned as a writer of essays, short stories and novels and has been described as “the most accomplished and graceful literary stylist of our time”. Always engaged with the Jewish tradition, Ozick’s work is funny, daring and serious, cutting through life to its core of meaning. Her new novel The Bear Boy is an outsider’s view of depression-era New York set at a unique moment in US history.
