Bernard Malamud Synopses: The Assistant is a standalone title by Bernard Malamud. A destitute Italian-American man with a violent history and a bad conscience drifts into the world of a hard-pressed Jewish grocer in Brooklyn and falls in love with his frustrated daughter, who convinces him to change his ways.

Set in Kiev in 1911 during a period of heightened anti-Semitism, The Fixer by Bernard Malamud tells the story of Yakov Bok, a Jewish handyman blamed for the brutal murder of a young Russian boy. Bok leaves his village to try his luck in Kiev, and after denying his Jewish identity, finds himself working for a member of the anti-Semitic Black Hundreds Society. When the boy is found nearly drained of blood in a cave, the Black Hundreds accuse the Jews of ritual murder. Arrested and imprisoned, Bok refuses to confess to a crime that he did not commit.
