About This Item

THE FIXER,
" Irrational streams of blood are staining earth..."

" O Yonge Hugh of Lincoln---slayn also

With cursed Jewes, as it is notable,

For it is but a litel while ago---

Preye eek for us, we sinful folk unstable,

…"

In a long , high-ceilinged cell under the direct court house , a dismal faded stucco structure in the commercial section of the plossky a few versts from the brickyard in the lukianovsky , Yakov , in a state of unrelieved distress , could not blot out the sight of himself marching manacled between two tall columns of gendarmes on horses , their sabers drawn and spurs clinking as they hurried him along snowy streets tracked slushy by sledge runners .

Synopsis

Bernard Malamud was born in Brooklyn, New York, and was an author of novels and short stories. His novel, The Eighth Day was the winner of the National Book Awards as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1967. In this fictionalized account of a true story regarding a viciously anti-Semitic incident, the protagonist, Yakov Bok, a poor Jew, travels to Kiev to try to change his life situation and fortunes. He tries to pass for a Gentile and is hired on as a supervisor of a brick-making factory. Soon, there is a murder of a Christian child and Bok’s Jewishness is discovered; he is unjustly imprisoned for the murder. He experiences torture and abuse at the hands of his jailers and slowly comes to realize his faith in the potential humanity of Christians and Jews alike. The novel employs rich, complex characters and an intellectual message regarding the need for humane political actions.
