As I see it, my focus has never been on masculine power rampant and triumphant but rather on the antithesis: masculine power impaired. I have hardly been singing a paean to male superiority but rather representing manhood stumbling, constricted, humbled, devastated and brought down. My intention is to present my fictional men not as they should be but vexed as men are.
Won the National Book Award twice, in 1960 for "Goodbye, Columbus" and in 1995 for "Sabbath's Theater".
