"Superior, startingly, incandescently alive" ( New Yorker)

"Unlike those of us who come howling into the world, blind and bare, Mr Roth appears with nails, hair, teeth, speaking coherently. He is skilled, witty, energetic and performs like a virtuoso" (Saul Bellow)

"A great novella - amazingly, this was Roth's first book - about love, sex and growing up" (David Nicholls Observer)

"Opening the first page of any Philip Roth is like hearing the ignition on a boiler roar into life. Passion is what we're going to get, and plenty of it" ( Guardian)
