"[This collection reflects] the imaginative, inventive, and insightful Ozick. Some of the best of Ozick as poet, essayist, and fiction writer is represented in A Cynthia Ozick Reader." — Library Journal

"Gathered here are some bristling, incandescent tales and thorny essays that show Ozick at her finest." — The Seattle Times
