- we hunt the dead

Bernard Malamud
April 26, 1914 - March 18, 1986
Mount Auburn - Cambridge, MA


Bernard Malamud was a Jewish-American writer whose fiction often drew upon his roots.  His short stories were most popular, but it was his well-known novel The Fixer that gave him great critical acclaim: it won him the 1966 National Book Award as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.


Don't miss Charles Bulfinch, Buckminster Fuller, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Winslow Homer, Oliver Wendell Holmes and Mary Baker Eddy also buried in this cemetery, in addition to some other historical figures you might find interesting (but that we didn't!).


Factoid:  A movie made from his book The Natural starred Robert Reford and had an ending that varied greatly from the book's.
