  • A TRUE Classic Aug 1, 2013

    This is and always will be my favorite growing up book. Portnoy is me except for the liver thing...
    Great comedy that must not be missed.

  • Enjoyable Dec 9, 2010

    I enjoyed this hilarious book about a young Jewish boy struggling to come to terms with the facts of life. Perhaps a bit harsh for delicate readers. After finishing the book, I felt like writing a sequel about my own early life and sending it to Philip Roth. I realised, however, that there was nothing he could learn from me. His mastery of the language is simply brilliant.
