Dictation: A Quartet

'“Deceptions and obsessions drive this elegant collection of four stories. . . . Playful, teasing, provocative fare from this most accomplished of ironists.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review   “These novellas are prime examples of Ozick’s rigorous writing style, her propensity for recognizing the element of ridiculousness in human tragedy, and her second-nature sympathy for eccentric characters.” —Booklist, starred review   “A carefully honed, sharply intelligent new collection of four stories shows Ozick at the height of her stylistic powers. . . . Ozick’s stories ingeniously put scholarship in the service of human flowerings.” —Publishers Weekly   “Ozick is at the top of her form in these splendid stories, and every library will want a copy. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal, starred review'
