Search - List of Books by Chaim Potok

"A non-fiction writer pretty much has the shape of the figure in front of him or her and goes about refining it. A work of non-fiction is not as difficult to write as a work of fiction, but it's not as satisfying in the end." -- Chaim Potok
Chaim Potok (; February 17, 1929 - July 23, 2002) was an American Jewish author and rabbi. Potok is most famous for his first book The Chosen, a 1967 novel, which became a bestseller. The book stayed on New York’s best seller list for 39 weeks and sold more than 3,400,000 copies.
