©1994 Philip Roth; (P)2009 Brilliance Audio, Inc.
"A thoughtful...elegant novel....A fine display of literary skills." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Ranks among the major achievements in the literature of our time." (Village Voice)
"Philip Roth is a great historian of modern eroticism.... [He] speaks of a sexuality that questions itself; it is still hedonism, but it is problematic, wounded, ironic hedonism. His is the uncommon union of confession and irony. Infinitely vulnerable in his sincerity and infinitely elusive in his irony." (Milan Kundera)
He gets deeply into men`s sexuality
The dying animal by same author, sort of the same problematic.-
A boring book, redeemed only by the quality of the writing. A waste of time.
