Art and ArdorCynthia Ozick

Published by Atlantic Books
Art & Ardor was the first of Cynthia Ozick’s collections of her non-fiction pieces, and covers the longest span (1968 to 1983) of the now seven volumes. First printed in a variety of publications, these pieces appeared in not only The New Republic, Partisan Review, and The New York Review of Books, but also Mademoiselle and Ms.
The magazine articles collected here do more than stand on their own. They jump up and down, they grab the reader by the shirt-front... Art & Ardor... is by turns quarrelsome, quirky, unfair, funny and brilliant.
