WHY WE LOVE THESE STORIES
Students love these very human, often painful stories, both of which feature a father, and a daughter and a suitor who are roughly high school or college age. These stories are deceptively simple but deal with complex themes and lend themselves to many applications. The wording is straightforward and yet the issues and conflicts, so true and honest, are very difficult to capture, making Malamud one of those writers who just “make it look
easy.” Not in the public domain, these stories are very easily accessible in Malamud’s works of collected short stories at the local library for FREE.
