Reviews

"As an essayist, Cynthia Ozick is a very good storyteller. Her arguments are plots....They twist and turn, digress, slow down and speed up, surprise with sudden illuminations.... She likes to spin and sparkle.... Insight, feeling, and the writer's art come together."-- The New York Times Book Review "Plenitude...[a] brilliant collection of essays....daring but wholly persuasive." -- Chicago Tribune "To read Cynthia Ozick is to be borne along by a mind passionately and intellectually engaged." -- Newsday "As an essayist, Cynthia Ozick is a very good storyteller.
