    Once a scandalously inventive puppeteer, Mickey Sabbath at 64 is an aging, raging powerhouse, defiantly antagonistic and exceedingly libidinous. But after the death of his longtime mistress, Sabbath embarks on a turbulent journey into his past.

    Story

    The Audio quality isn't that great because it was probably recorded a while ago.
    The reading performance (great) and the book itself (a masterpiece) make the half-hour or so it takes to adapt to the audio well worth it.

    Like I said in the headline, this is not for the faint of heart because there's a lot of graphic sex (if graphic can be said of an audiobook, which, in my opinion, it indeed can) and it is quite morbid, cynical, immoral, immoderate, etc.... But this is a Philip Roth novel so what do you expect? And it probably is his magnum opus, a heartwrenching, tender and deeply touching ode to life that will manage to make you laugh at places where you'll think it should make you cringe.
