Reviewer Scores Malamud's 'God's Grace'

By ARNOLD AGES
Prof., University of Toronto

Malamud,
Bernard
author of such unique
novels as "The Assistant,"
"The Natural" and "The
Fixer," has decided to inno-
vate in his latest creative ef-
fort, "God's Grace" (Farrar,
Straus & Giroux). He has
invented, for want of abet-
ter term, science fiction
with a Yiddish accent.
After reading his current
story readers will wish that
Malamud had remained
within the old traditional
genres.
He gives the impression
in this latest chronicle that
Charleton Heston and "The
Planet of the Apes" should
be re-cast in a Jewish idiom.

BERNARD MALAMUD

Malamud's attempt to do
just that in "God's Grace"
results in a tasteless and
tendentious concoction with
occasional moments of lev-
ity.

oceanographic explorer
who discovers after
emerging from the
watery depths during an
expecition that he is the
last man on earth.

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The resignation last week of
Rep. Frederick Richmond
(D-NY) brings the number
of Jews in the House of
Representatives down to 25.
Richmond resigned after
pleading guilty to evading
nearly $50,000 in income
tax payments, marijuana
possession and illegally
paying $7,420 to a Navy
employe who helped obtain
a business for the Brooklyn
Navy yard.
Richmond was first
elected to Congress in 1974
and served a Brooklyn dis-
trict that while largely

SUMMER HOURS:

His simian followers take
to Cohn enthusiastically
until the lonely mentor has
the unwisdom to become in-
volved with a female pri-
mate. The issue of that
union, a young female, be-
comes the object of much
jealousy and hatred among
the chinipanzees and other
creatures who proceed to
revolt against Cohn's
hegemony.
Predictably, the saintly
Cohn becomes a sacrifice to
the rapaciousness of the be-
ings whom he has been try-
ing so selfishly to tutor.
There is no doubt that the
critics will see in
Malamud's latest work a
series of marvellous mythic
images. It will be called a
metaphor ofman in modern
society. Fashionable obser-
vers will see in it existential
values with all kinds of bi-
blical resonances.
What it is really, how-
ever; is a grotesque carica-
ture of the sancta of life, of
Jewish history and religion.

- THE

Humanity has been
wiped out by a thermonuc-
lear exchange and Cohn
finds himself in the role of
the first Adam seeking to
reconstruct a universe.
He arrives on a desert is-
land with a talented chim-
panzee (who has also been
saved on the research ves-
sel) whose vocal chords have
been altered to permit him
to speak.
Cohn and Buzz soon dis-
cover that they have other
primate neighbors on the is-,
land; Cohn sets out to
instruct them in language
and the other amenities of
civilization.
Cohn is no Robinson
Crusoe. Lacking the
practical skills that might
be of some use on the is-
land, Cohn pours his
energies into nation-
building utilizing the
leadership qualities of a
Moses, the interpretive
skills of a Hillel and the
pedagogical distinctions
of an Akiba.
