9780099582014: Sabbath's Theater

Sabbath's Theater is a comic creation of epic proportions, and Mickey Sabbath is its gargantuan hero. Once a scandalously inventive puppeteer, Sabbath at sixty-four is still defiantly antagonistic and exceedingly libidinous. But after the death of his long-time mistress - an erotic free spirit whose adulterous daring exceeds even his own - Sabbath embarks on a turbulent journey into his past. Bereft and grieving, besieged by the ghosts of those who loved and hated him most, he contrives a succession of farcical disasters that take him to the brink of madness and extinction.

Review:

"Sabbath explodes some mad genie out of his bottle... [Sabbath's Theater] has more firestorming prose than any other novel I have read this year" Observer "In time this will be seen as Roth's best novel so far" -- James Wood Guardian, Books of the Year "A work of near-heroic vitality and cunning" Sunday Telegraph "For me, the book of the year - maybe the decade - is Sabbath's Theater...funny...moving, imaginative, deep... A masterpiece" Times Literary Supplement "Absolutely filthy book with one of the most unpleasantly priapic and desperate anti-heroes in modern literature. A delight" -- Nigel Lindsay Daily Express

Book Description:

'A postwar American masterpiece' - Daily Telegraph
