9780099477563: Zuckerman Unbound

Now in his mid-thirties, Nathan Zuckerman, a would-be recluse despite his newfound fame as a bestselling author, ventures onto the streets of Manhattan in the final year of the turbulent sixties. Not only is he assumed by his fans to be his own fictional satyr, Gilbert Carnovsky, but he also finds himself the target of admonishers, advisers, and literary critics. The recent murders of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr., lead an unsettled Zuckerman to wonder if 'target' may be more than a figure of speech.

In Zuckerman Unbound - the second volume of the trilogy and epilogue Zuckerman Bound - the notorious novelist retreats from his oldest friends, breaks his marriage to a virtuous woman, and damages, perhaps irreparably, his affectionate connection to his younger brother...and all because of his great good fortune.

Review:

"It is a) funny, b) sparkling prose, c) to-the-point short, d) genuinely moving. Between two thin covers Roth manages to combine personal sexual satire...and a troubling moral story about his last encounter with his dying father" Financial Times "Zuckerman Unbound is masterful, sure in every touch, as clear and economical of line as a crystal vase" New York Times Book Review "It was bold of Roth to write a novel about being famous...a comic stroll in the hall of mirrors" Newsweek "Fluent, funny" -- Nick Laird Daily Telegraph, Christmas round up "[Roth's] narrative hand is wonderfully sure, his comic timing worthy of the Ritz Brothers... Not since Henry MIller has anyone learned to be as funny and compassionate and brutal and plaintive in the space of a paragraph" Village Voice

Book Description:

'He writes so well. His prose is both elegant and furious. It can be witty, tender and brutal in a single paragraph' Melvyn Bragg
