This is the classic story of a Brooklyn Jewish boy, the child of immigrants, who turned himself into one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. Philip Davis has written the first-ever biography of Bernard Malamud who died in 1986 and has suffered a certain neglect since then. In this celebratory event, designed to mark Malamud’s revival, Davis told the story of the life and work, accompanied by powerful readings given by the distinguished actress, Janet Suzman.
