Product description

From Amazon

Roy Hobbs, the protagonist of The Natural, makes the mistake of pronouncing aloud his dream: to be the best there ever was. Such hubris, of course, invites divine intervention, but the brilliance of Bernard Malamud's novel is the second chance it offers its hero, elevating him--and his story--into the realm of myth. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“A brilliant and unusually fine novel.” ―The New York Times

“A preposterously readable story about life.” ―Time

“Malamud [holds a] high and honored place among contemporary American writers.” ―Washington Post Book World

“The finest novel about baseball since Ring Lardner left the scene.” ―St. Louis Post-Dispatch
