    (162)

    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..."
    "Roth always delivers!"

    Would you try another book from Philip Roth and/or Dennis Boutsikaris?

    Yes, I would.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I have not decided as yet


    What didn’t you like about Dennis Boutsikaris’s performance?

    I liked his reading very much. I was especially pleased with the way he moved between the characters: not exaggerated yet with meaningful transitions. He has the perfect voice for a book about Newark.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Nemesis?

    I would not cut any. It is important to honor the author.


    Any additional comments?

    Philip Roth always manages to touch what it is to be human.
