First published in 1966, The Fixer was described for its fashionable prose by Elizabeth Harding at Vogue as "[b]rilliant [andharrowing . . . Historical reality combined with fictional skill and beauty of a high order make [it] a novel of startling importance." And Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Everything is Illuminated, "[w]hat makes it a great book, above and beyond its glowing goodness, has to do with something else altogether: its necessity...This novel, like all great novels reminds us that we must do something." The Fixer "deserves to rank alongside the great Jewish-American novels of Saul Bellow and Philip Roth" (The Independent).
