Roth Unbound: A Writer and His Books

Roth Unbound: A Writer and His BooksA critical evaluation of Philip Roth―the first of its kind―that takes on the man, the myth, and the work
Philip Roth is one of the most renowned writers of our time. From his debut, Goodbye, Columbus, which won the National Book Award in 1960, and the explosion of Portnoy's Complaint in 1969 to his haunting reimagining of Anne Frank's story in The Ghost Writer ten years later and the series of masterworks starting in the mid-eighties―The Counterlife, Patrimony, Operation Shylock, Sabbath's Theater, American Pastoral, The Human Stain―Roth has produced some of the great American literature of the modern era. And yet there has been no major critical work about him until now.
