Summary
Bringing to bear insights from Jewish, literary, and cultural studies, Sarah Blacher Cohen sheds new light on the works of one of Americas foremost writers. Arguing persuasively that Ozicks fiction is a form of comedy, Cohen interweaves religion and literature, skillfully illuminating the complex relationship between the comic and the sacred. Where others have emphasized Ozicks intellectualism and Jewish learning, Cohen foregrounds whimsicality, grotesque realism, irony, satire, and exuberance as the defining characteristics of Ozicks art in such works as Trust, The Cannibal Galaxy, The Messiah of Stockholm, The Pagan Rabbi, and the Puttermesser stories
