Synopsis:

In an insightful new novel by the Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award-winning author of I Married a Communist, a college professor with a sexual indiscretion in his past is hounded from his job by academic enemies who label him a racist. Reissue. (A Miramax Films & Paramount Pictures film, written by Nicholas Meyer, directed by Robert Benton, releasing Fall 2003, starring Anthony Hopkins, Nicole Kidman, Gary Sinise, & Ed Harris) (General Fiction)


Review:

"Roth expertly captures the overheated atmosphere of a campus witch hunt, but his book isn't a diatribe against political correctness or academic life; he has a larger target in mind. The novel takes place in 1998, as President Clinton is being impeached by the same forces of narrow-minded righteousness that are persecuting Coleman Silk.THE HUMAN STAIN is the latest volley in Roth's lifelong war against small-mindedness in American life."

Bruce Morton, Chicago Tribune Books, 04/30/2000

Review:

"THE HUMAN STAIN is perhaps a less finished work than its two predecessors, but the task Mr. Roth has assayed here is more difficult. Rather than sift through the accumulated data of the known past, he has sought to capture in all its contradictions the unknowable present, to record 'the history that isn't yet history, the history that the clock is now ticking off, the history proliferating as I write.' He has succeeded magnificently. Long after the nonfiction accounts of the Clinton era have faded from memory, THE HUMAN STAIN will remain, a master novelist's haunting parable about our troubled modern moment."

Sam Tanenhaus, Wall Street Journal, 05/07/2000

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 203 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. It is 1998, the year in which America is whipped into a frenzy of prurience by the impeachment of a president, and in a small New England town, an aging classics professor, Coleman Silk, is forced to retire when his colleagues decree that he is a racist. The charge is a lie, but the real truth about Silk would have astonished even his most virulent accuser. Coleman Silk has a secret, one which has been kept for fifty years from his wife, his four children, his colleagues, and his friends, including the writer Nathan Zuckerman. It is Zuckerman who stumbles upon Silk s secret and sets out to reconstruct the unknown biography of this eminent, upright man, esteemed as an educator for nearly all his life, and to understand how this ingeniously contrived life came unraveled. And to understand also how Silk s astonishing private history is, in the words of The Wall Street Journal, magnificently interwoven with the larger public history of modern America.
