9780099399018: Portnoy's Complaint

Portnoy's Complaint n. [after Alexander Portnoy (1933-)] A disorder in which strongly-felt ethical and altruistic impulses are perpetually warring with extreme sexual longings, often of a perverse nature. Spielvogel says: 'Acts of exhibitionism, voyeurism, fetishism, auto-eroticism and oral coitus are plentiful; as a consequence of the patient's "morality," however, neither fantasy nor act issues in genuine sexual gratification, but rather in overriding feelings of shame and the dread of retribution, particularly in the form of castration.' (Spielvogel, O. 'The Puzzled Penis', Internationale Zeitschrift fur Psychoanalyse, Vol. XXIV, p. 909.) it is believed by Spielvogel that many of the symptoms can be traced to the bonds obtaining in the mother-child relationship.

Review:

"Philip Roth's gift for fantasy, his superb dialogue, his ability to evoke places and atmospheres, makes Portnoy's Complaint at once hilariously, scandalously funny and deeply moving" (Philip French Financial Times)

"Alexander Portnoy is a great comic character. He is going to be for many readers what his mother was for him: The Most Unforgettable Character I've Met" (Julian Mitchell New Statesman)

"A hysterically funny monologue which has already added a new prototype to American literature... Anyone who can recall anything of the awesome mystery and humiliating farce of growing up will find this book compulsive reading. And it is blessedly, extremely funny" (Tony Tanner Spectator)

"If it doesn't make you laugh, you may have lost your sense of humour" ( Week)

"Scabrous language and fantastic comic energy" ( Jewish Renaissance)

From the Publisher:

'The most outrageously funny book about sex yet written' Guardian
