Product Details

Praise

“Magnificent … splendid…. I hope The Counterlife felt, as Mr. Roth wrote it, like a triumph, because that is certainly how it reads to me.” —William Gass, The New York Times Book Review

“Roth is a comic genius…. In this book (wonderfully sharp, worryingly intense) he is an electrifier.” —Martin Amis, The Atlantic

“No other writer combines such a surface of colloquial relaxation and even dishevelment with such a dense load of mediating intelligence…. Roth has never written more scrupulously or, in spots, more lovingly.” —John Updike, The New Yorker
