Critic Reviews

“If Roth were not so good a writer it would be the world’s duty to force him onto the stage." Saturday Review (John Ciardi)
“The Roth record is the best of this first group.” ( Detroit News )
"You get the exuberant surprise of Philip Roth not only reading, but acting two disillusioned, perpetually injured old boarding house inhabitants.” (Joan Wickersham, Boston Globe, )
