Bernard Malamud (1914-1986), was one of the most prominent contemporary American novelists who received
both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for his literary achievements. Most of whose books focus on the Jewish experience in America. The Fixer (1966), for which Malamud received the 1967 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, is a poignant novel (based on a true story) of the suffering of a Russian Jewish workman sentenced unjustly to prison. He demonstrates how human beings can come through suffering to an affi rmative view of life, mixing an abiding compassion for Jewish life with subtle touches of wry humor. To be completed in twelve volumes, this work offers the first comprehensive grasp of Malamudfs literature.

Robert Penn Warren (1905-1989) was better known as a novelist and received tremendous recognition for gAll the Kingfs Menh, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1947, though regarded as one of the best poets of his generation. (He was appointed the fi rst U.S. Poet Laureate in 1985.)
