    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.
