Praise

"A radical, complex, and moving book…the best example yet of Roth’s astonishing prowess when he is at the top of his talent and control." —Ted Solotaroff, Esquire

"A new shock world of sensual possibility…. Need one say again that Roth is an admirable novelist who never steps twice into the same river?" —Anthony Burgess

"The Breast is terrific…inventive and sane and very funny. The trick which is the heart of the book is brilliant…and rich with meaning." —John Gardner, The New York TImes Book Review

"Hilarious, serious, visionary, logical, sexual-philosophical; the ending amazes—the joke takes three steps beyond savagery and satire and turns into a sublimeness of pity. One knows when one is reading something that will permanently enter the culture." —Cynthia Ozick
