9780099477518: The Breast

Like a latter-day Gregor Samsa, Professor David Kepesh wakes up one morning to find that he has been transformed. But where Kafka's protagonist turned into a giant beetle, the narrator of Philip Roth's richly conceived fantasy has become a 155-pound female breast. What follows is a deliriously funny yet touching exploration of the fully implications of Kepesh's metamorphosis - a daring, heretical book that brings us face to face with the intrinsic strangeness of sex and subjectivity.

Review:

"Terrific...inventive and sane and very funny" -- John Gardner New York Times Book Review "Roth's prose is, as ever, elegant and intelligent, delicate even when at its most crude. It sent me back to Kafka - a brave thing to do, but he stands the comparison well" -- Margaret Drabble "A new shock world of sensual possibility... Need one say again that Roth is an admirable novelist who never steps twice into the same river?" -- Anthony Burgess "Hilarious, serious, visionary, logical, sexual-philosophical; the ending amazes - the joke takes three steps beyond savagery and satire and turns into a sublimeness of pity. One knows when one is reading something that will permanently enter the culture" -- Cynthia Ozick "A radical, complex, and moving book" Esquire
