Remembering Malamud

The also serve who only stand and ...... read...

The reason I have read so many books in my life is based on waiting.

Ladies are expected to wait.

"Now you can sit here and wait... can I get you a cup of tea? ... a magazine?...

That's how I met Mr Malamud. The name seemed intriguing, exotic.
I bought his books, I found them in libraries and I brought him with me for months on end. His kind view of people living in an urban environment kept me in tune with Dublin in the 'eighties.

He was published by

Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Macmillan Press
