Sometimes referred to as the "Emily Dickinson of the Bronx", Cynthia Ozick has been turning out some of the most highly praised literature in English, for over 40 years. Known most often for her short stories, Ozick has an extensive catalogue that includes novels, story collections, essays, and even dramas. Journalist Roger Rosenblatt sits down with the accomplished author for an afternoon of intimate and witty conversation about her life and her writing. Listeners will delight in Ozick’s candor and within minutes will see just why she retains such a large space on the shelf of American literature.
In 2008, Cynthia Ozick published a new collection of stories, Dictation, and won both the PEN/Malumud Award and PEN/Nabokov Award for lifetime achievement. Also a novelist and critic, Ms. Ozick "embodies literature's finest potential: the strength and rigor of formality combined with the flexibility and vigor (the sap) of creativity," wrote the Los Angeles Times. This program is one of a series of afternoon talks, hosted by Roger Rosenblatt, which features intimate discussions with writers about their work, their passions and the books on their night tables.
