Review:

"Roth is the bravest writer in the United States. He's morally brave, he's politically brave. And Portnoy is part of that bravery." --Cynthia Ozick, "Newsday "Deliciously funny...absurd and exuberant, wild and uproarious... a brilliantly vivid reading experience."--"New York Times Book Review "Simply one of the two or three funniest works in American fiction." --"Chicago Sun-Times "Touching as well as hilariously lewd.... Roth is vibrantly talented...as marvelous a mimic and fantasist as has been produced by the most verbal group in human history." --Alfred Kazin, "New York Review of Books "From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Publisher:

'The most outrageously funny book about sex yet written' Guardian
