    It is 1998, the year in which America is whipped into a frenzy of prurience by the impeachment of a president, and in a small New England town, an aging classics professor, Coleman Silk, is forced to retire when his colleagues decree that he is a racist. The charge is a lie, but the real truth about Silk would have astonished even his most virulent accuser.

    RYAN says: "There's a good story in there. Somewhere."
    "This was just great from start to finish"

    Would you listen to The Human Stain again? Why?

    I loved this book, am a latecomer to Roth, listened first to American Pastoral and the Counterlife. This was like the commentator said in the interview: Roth playing a brilliant sonata up and down the key board with intense virtuosity. Extremely satisfying and I preferred it slightly to the Pulitzer Prize Winner, American Pastoral. I liked the narrator better here too. I did not listen to it again because I just listened to Infinite Jest twice, which took seven months or so. This was not quite that hard. I went from this to Franzen's Freedom. Wow, so many great books!


    Any additional comments?

    A big rave.
