9780099225218: A Philip Roth Reader

Goodbye, Columbus, Philip Roth's first book, was published in 1959 and promptly won the National Book Award. A Philip Roth Reader is a rich anthology of selections from eight of the novels he has published since then - Letting Go, When She Was Good, Portnoy's Complaint, Our Gang, The Great American Movel, My Life as a Man, The Professor of Desire and The Ghost Writer - as well as the definitive versions of his stories The Breast and Novotny's Pain. Also included is the much admired essay-story Looking at Kafka. Organised thematically in three parts, the Reader presents the full range of Roth's mastery.
