Some brief overview of this book

An overlooked masterpiece. It may still be undervalued as Malamuds funniest and most embracing novel. —Jonathan LethemIn A New Life, Bernard Malamud—generally thought of as a distinctly New York writer—took on the American myth of the West as a place of personal reinvention.

When Sy Levin, a high school teacher beset by alcohol and bad decisions, leaves the city for the Pacific Northwest to start over, its no surprise that he conjures a vision of the extraordinary new life awaiting him there: He imagined the pioneers in covered wagons entering this valley for the first time. Although he had lived little in nature Levin had always loved it, and the sense of having done the right thing in leaving New York was renewed in him. Soon after his arrival at Cascadia College, however, Levin realizes he has been taken in by a mirage. The failures pile up anew, and Levin, fired from his post, finds himself back where he started and little the wiser for it.A New Life—as Jonathan Lethems introduction makes clear—is Malamud at his best: with his belief in luck and new beginnings Sy Levin embodies the thwarted yearning for transcendence that is at the heart of all Malamuds work.This is the story of S. Levin, a bearded man with a burdensome past, who came from New York to a small town in the Pacific Northwest to live a new life.
