Allegra GOODMAN ... Intuition (2006)

READING the works of Allegra Goodman is time well spent. She is quite a consistent writer, especially when tackling the complexities and perplexities of contemporary Jewish life in America. If you enjoy the fictions of Cynthia Ozick, Grace Paley and Philip Roth, you will most probably enjoy Goodman’s novels and short stories because she has a style very reminiscent of them.
