Album Apap English 112. The Magic Barrel Lyrics. Not long ago there lived in uptown New York, in a small, almost meager room, though crowded with books, Leo Finkle, a rabbinical student in the Yeshivah University. Finkle, after six years of study, was to be ordained in June and had been advised by an acquaintance that he might find it easier to win himself a congregation if he were married.

Many of Malamud’s characters are Jewish (the title story, for example, is about a rabbinical student trying to find a wife through a very peculiar marriage broker) but through his gentle and haunting exploration of their predicaments he illuminates a region that is common to every man’s world.

A matchmaker finds love for a would-be rabbi; a shopkeeper dies because he cannot afford a doctor; a little girl steals candy; an angel visits a grieving tailor. In A New Life, Bernard Malamud-generally thought of as a distinctly New York writer-took on the American myth of the West as a place of personal reinvention. When Sy Levin, a high school teacher beset by alcohol and bad decisions, leaves the city for the Pacific Northwest to start over, it's no surprise that he conjures a vision of the extraordinary new life awaiting him there: "He imagined the pioneers in covered wagons entering this valley for the first time.

Having never read Malamud, I did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with his style of writing. He fills every space on the page with relevant details that put the reader into the heads of his characters. "We" get inside each character's head in a short amount of time. Each story is from the heart and Malamud wastes NO Space in his storytelling. I highly recommend this book if you have never read this brilliant author. He's of Jewish descent, and writes to reveal much to the reader from a Jewish perspective. I sincerely wish my creative writing professors had used this book in at least one of our classes, for I consider reading Malamud a learning experience. With each story, he tells a complete story of merit within a few pages and goes onto the next. I look forward to reading more of this author's work––his novels. This is a wonderful introduction to the creative talent of writing. The stories were so well written and so thought provoking that I felt as if I had been treated from and by a true genius of writing.

Bernard Malamud, is one of the innumerable Jewish writers who have won prestigious awards, among others such as Philip Roth and Joseph Heller, whose work are not only highly regarded within literary circles but also receive much critical acclaim and enjoy tremendous popularity internationally, with this anthology, which won the 1959 National Book Award, being no different.

The short stories featured in this anthology are well written, accessible - although at times obscure, incorporate well developed characters, are full of pathos - aptly capturing the sufferings of the Jewish people, and will go down in the annals of history as one of the finest short story collections of all time.

Wonderful to re-read this masterful collection of moving short stories.
  • kewdiepie
Bernard Malamud is a writer like no other Jewish writer. He is suspenseful and writes stories that the reader cannot put down until the end.
He can be mystical, comical or tragic. He succeeds at wriiting memorably whatever style he selects.
  • Anarahuginn
Flannery O'Connor is responsible for my purchase of this book. In one of her letters, she mentioned that she had just
finished reading The Magic Barrel and stated that "this guy makes the rest of us look bad." (Or words to that effect;
can't recall the exact quote.)

Many years ago I read Malamud's "The Fixer" and never forgot it. Its message has stayed with me through many political
trials of my own. The only other book which has never been forgotten is "The Arms of Krupp." Have not finished all the
stories in The Magic Barrel but so far they are all wonderful. One cannot go wrong with truly gifted writers.
  • Bolanim
I enjoyed most of the stories to some degree, but they had recurring themes and character types. This grew tiring after several stories for me.

I chose to read Bernard Malamud because Joe Hill referenced him in his short story "Pop Art". He said something to the effect of Malamud being a character's favorite author because he understood loneliness. I found this to be incontrovertibly true, and was the very aspect I enjoyed most about his stories. I don't plan to read any more Malamud, but I do not regret having read this book.
  • Lailace
I wasn't sure about this book but decided to give it a shot and I am so happy I did. All the stories are entertaining and well written. You never get bored. I felt like a kid again wanting to know what happens next page after page. Great writer!
If you are into Jewish folklore and good stories, this it highly enjoyable.
