"Our most accomplished novelist. . . . [With Everyman] personal tenderness has reached a new intensity."
—The New Yorker
“If descriptive amplitude went out with the nineteenth century, Philip Roth, who strides the whole time and territory of the word, has resuscitated it – in description revved with the power of narrative itself.”
—The New York Times Book Review
"Let’s use a noun I’ve never used before: masterpiece."
“[Roth is] as essential to the experience of modern America–its literature, history, and moral reckoning–as any writer on the planet.”
—The Boston Globe
