Product Details



“One of Roth’s most powerful novels ever … moving, generous and ambitious … a fiercely affecting work of art.” —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“Dazzling … a wrenching, compassionate, intelligent novel … gorgeous.”The Boston Globe

“At once expansive and painstakingly detailed…. The pages of American Pastoral crackle with the electricity and zest of a first-rate mind at work.” San Francisco Chronicle

“Never before has Roth written with such clear conviction. Never before has he assembled so many fully formed characters.” Time

“An incandescent fiction…. American Pastoral scintillates with more Rothian wit, paradox, eloquent tantrums and absurd pratfalls placed at the exit of each irresistible argument that can be counted…. He strikes a vivid blaze.” Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Roth has beaten pain and rage into a beautiful shape. American Pastoral is elaborately patterned and layered, ingeniously crafted to contain, even as it amplifies, a cathartic, barbaric yawp.” —New York Observer

“Wrenching, skillfully told…a novel not to be missed.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Deeply moving…. Roth achieves a masterpiece…a literary triumph.” Playboy

“A gripping, emotionally charged novel.”People
