Lindbergh defeated Franklin Roosevelt by a landslide in the 1940 presidential election, fear invaded every Jewish household in America. Not only had Lindbergh, in a nationwide radio address, publicly blamed the Jews for selfishly pushing America towards a pointless war with Nazi Germany, but, upon taking office as the 33rd president of the United States, he negotiated a cordial 'understanding' with Adolf Hitler, whose conquest of Europe and whose virulent anti-Semitic policies he appeared to accept without difficulty. What then followed in America is the historical setting for this startling new novel by Pulitzer-prize winner Philip Roth, who recounts what it was like for his Newark family - and for a million such families all over the country - during the menacing years of the Lindbergh presidency, when American citizens who happened to be Jews had every reason to expect the worst.Hide synopsis

Normally, I pass on fiction but this was a welcome change for me. Even with my conservative views, I enjoyed this. Roosevelt for the time was what America needed with his strong leadership.Popularity swept Lindbergh into the white house and the populous was enthralled..very similar today.

Very interesting book from a youngster's POV about what might have happened in America if President Roosevelt had not been re-elected in the 1940 general election. Re-confirmed my progressive outlook toward politics and government.
Fiction is not worth reading unless plausible or else entertaining. Conversely, Philip Roth, an accomplished novelist, goes the other way his old age, pitting MAKE BELIEVE against an aviation hero, Charles Lindbergh, who in not alive to defend what his bravery won for America long ago and forever. ...
