“In this brilliant, sympathetic, and often witty full-length study of our ‘Kafka domesticus,’ Claudia Roth Pierpoint weaves together Philip Roth’s life, his extraordinary fictions, and the cultural climate to which he fiercely responded. … I can’t imagine any study that will give greater pleasure to Roth’s many intimate companions, his readers.” —David Denby
