9780099511083: Sabbath's Theater

Once a scandalously inventive puppeteer, Mickey Sabbath at sixty-four is still defiantly antagonistic and exceedingly libidinous. But after the death of his long-time mistress, Sabbath embarks on a turbulent journey into his past. Bereft and grieving, besieged by the ghosts of those who loved and hated him most, he contrives a succession of farcical disasters that take him to the brink of madness and extinction.

"For me, the book of the year - maybe the decade - is Sabbath's Theater...funny...moving, imaginative, deep... A masterpiece" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Sabbath explodes some mad genie out of his bottle...[ Sabbath's Theater] has more firestorming prose than any other novel I have read this year" ( Observer)

"In time this will be seen as Roth's best novel so far" (James Wood Guardian, Books of the Year)

"A work of near-heroic vitality and cunning" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Absolutely filthy book with one of the most unpleasantly priapic and desperate anti-heroes in modern literature. A delight" (Nigel Lindsay Daily Express)
