I have enjoyed the few Philip Roth books I have read. I'll be waiting to see what you think of this one!ReplyDelete
So far, I really like it. I had no idea what it was about when I started it, but the title story is -- like so many Roth books -- about Jewish families in Newark. In this case, a young couple falling in love. It's great.ReplyDelete
