9780099523420: Indignation

It is 1951 in America, the second year of the Korean War. A studious, law-abiding, intense youngster from Newark, New Jersey, Marcus Messner is beginning his sophomore year on the pastoral, conservative campus of Ohio's Winesburg College. And why is he here and not at a local college in Newark where he originally enrolled? Because his father, the sturdy, hardworking neighbourhood butcher seems to have gone mad - mad with fear and apprehension of the dangers of adult life, the dangers of the world, the dangers he sees in the every corner for his beloved boy. So Marcus leaves and, far from home, has to find his way amid the customs and constrictions of another American world.

Indignation is the story of a young man's education in life's terrifying chances and bizarre obstructions. It is a story of inexperience, foolishness, intellectual resistance, sexual discovery, courage and error, told with all the inventive energy and with Roth has at his command.

Review:

"Intricately wrought, passionate and fascinating... A late masterpiece" (John Banville Financial Times)

"Roth reasserts his fictional mastery with a fine taut narrative about the frustrations of youth...every part of it is dovetailed into a story of compelling economy...a mid-20th-century tale of nemesis with all the intellectual and imaginative force of a great novelist writing at the height of his powers" ( Sunday Times)

"A gratifying novel... Indignation is, unquestionably, seriously "good" Roth" (Meg Wolitzer The Times)

"I relished Indignation. Roth writes with his trademark drive and fluency, on the knife blade between rage and laughter" (Jonathan Raban Guardian)

"Roth's novels abound in comic moments, and so does Indignation...His powerful new novel seethes with outrage...a deft, gripping, and deeply moving narrative" ( New York Review of Books)

Review:

Roth's best novel since The Counterlife... [none since are] as intricately wrought, passionate and fascinating as this... a late masterpiece.

'indignation ought to be required reading for presidential candidates.'
