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!
A big rave.
