American Pastoral by Philip Roth

$16.99

As the American century draws to an uneasy close, Philip Roth gives us an elegy for all our century's promises of prosperity, civic order, and domestic bliss. Roth's protagonist is a legendary athlete who grows up in the booming postwar years to marry a former Miss New Jersey, inherit his father's glove factory, and move into a stone house in the idyllic hamlet of Old Rimrock. And then one day in 1968, Swede's beautiful American luck deserts him. Compulsively readable, propelled by sorrow, rage, and a deep compassion for its characters, this is Roth's masterpiece.
