Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

With a new Afterword by the author for the 25th Anniversary edition."Touching as well as hilariously lewd.... Roth is vibrantly talented...as marvelous a mimic and fantasist as has been produced by the most verbal group in human history."--Alfred Kazin, New York Review of Books
"Deliciously funny...absurd and exuberant, wild and uproarious... a brilliantly vivid reading experience."--New York Times Book Review


Review:

"[Roth] is not an easygoing 'humorist' but a writer whose view of life is harsh, whose intellectual temper is fanatical, who likes his material to get defiant and wild, who works narratives out to a point which in its hysterical sharpness is not unlike a real suffering Jewish mama's....Portnoy in heat is particularly funny. Even when he graduates from the nearest receptacle to other bodies, sex remains his favorite form of protest. In the wildest throes, his bitterness is more in evidence than his passion, and his life remains, as always, furiously mental."

Alfred Kazin, New York Review of Books, 02/27/1969

Review:

"[W]ith PORTNOY'S COMPLAINT, Philip Roth has finally come up with the existentially quintessential form for any American-Jewish tale bearing--or baring--guilt. He has done so by simply but brilliantly casting his American Jewish hero--so obviously long in need of therapy--upon a psychoanalyst's couch...and allowed him to rant and rave and rend himself there. The result is not only one of those bullseye hits in the ever-darkening field of humor, a novel that is playfully and painfully moving, but also a work that is certainly catholic in appeal, potentially monumental in effect--and, perhaps more important, a deliciously funny book, absurd and exuberant, wild and uproarious...[A] brilliantly vivid reading experience."

Josh Greenfeld, New York Times Book Review, 02/23/1969
