    At the center of Nemesis is a vigorous, dutiful 23-year-old playground director, Bucky Cantor, a javelin thrower and weightlifter, who is devoted to his charges and disappointed with himself because his weak eyes have excluded him from serving in the war alongside his contemporaries. Focusing on Cantors dilemmas as polio begins to ravage his playground and on the everyday realities he faces, Roth leads us through every inch of emotion such a pestilence can breed.

    Mirek says: "Without pathos about life..."
    "A quick but satisfying listen"

    Story

    A thoughtful story of one man's journey through adversity and his internal struggle to make sense of it all. I learned something I had little knowledge of, as well...the polio epidemic.
