“Antiquities and Other Stories,” by Cynthia Ozick.

The Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle invites you to join the Chronicle Book Club for its Oct. 2 discussion of

From The New Yorker: “Five and a half decades after her belated début, [Ozick] has established herself as one of our era’s central writers, with an ample supply of exquisite fiction and belles-lettres; and she is still going. To publish a novel in your early twenties is impressive; to publish one at the age of ninety-three is something else altogether…. A brisk work of some thirty thousand words, [‘Antiquties’] explores her favorite subjects — envy and ambition, the moral peril of idolatry — in her favorite form. As you might expect, it also has much to say about last things, and the long perspectives open to the human mind as it approaches its terminus.”

Your Hosts

Toby Tabachnick, editor of the Chronicle
David Rullo, Chronicle staff writer
