It addresses a variety of issues of modern times- perhaps most notably race, but also others (such as women's issues and the Viet Nam War) ... More

I guess I'm not a fan

by tandd on May 12, 2008

If you like Philip Roth's works then this is a really good one. If you have never read one of his books then this is a good one to start with, so that you know he can write well. As for the story...

I had seen the movie on TV and decided to get the book. The movie was well acted and followed the book enough to make a good movie but reading the book was much better. If you can, see the movie and read the book, in that order. Adaria More
