Cynthia Ozick

"I wanted to use what I was, to be what I was born to be—not to have a 'career,' but to be that straightforward obvious unmistakable animal, a writer," Cynthia Ozick once said. She has certainly achieved her goal. The winner of numerous literary awards, Cynthia Ozick is a writer par excellence, author of essays, plays, short stories and novels.
