Rotten Reviews: The Assistant

[This botched assessment refers to Bernard Malamud’s second novel, published in 1957, produced as a movie, and included in Time’s All-TIME 100 Novels.]

“Despite its occasional spark of humanity and its melancholy humor this is on the whole too grim a picture to have wide appeal.”

Excerpted from: Bernard, Andre, and Bill Henderson, eds. Pushcart’s Complete Rotten Reviews and Rejections. Wainscott, NY: Pushcart Press, 1998.
