9780099801900: Deception

A famous writer, named Philip, and his mistress meet in a room without a bed. They talk, they play games with each other, they have sex, they tell lies. DECEPTION, Philip Roth's most poignant and provocative work since Portnoy's Complaint, explores adultery and the unmasking of illicit lovers in a novel that exposes the tenderness and uncertainty underlying all affairs of the heart.

From the Inside Flap:

"With the lover everyday life recedes," Roth writes?and exhibiting all his skill as a brilliant observer of human passion, he presents in Deception the tightly enclosed world of adulterous intimacy with a directness that has no equal in American fiction. At the center of Deception are two adulterers in their hiding place. He is a middle-aged American writer named Philip, living in London, and she is an articulate, intelligent, well-educated Englishwoman compromised by a humiliating marriage to which, in her thirties, she is already nervously half-resigned. The book's action consists of conversation?mainly the lovers talking to each other before and after making love. That dialogue?sharp, rich, playful, inquiring, "moving," as Hermione Lee writes, "on a scale of pain from furious bafflement to stoic gaiety"?is nearly all there is to this book, and all there needs to be.

From the Back Cover:

"This swift, elegant, disturbing novel...stands at the extreme of contemporary fiction." — The New York Times Book Review

" Deception is itself deceptive, as elegant and ingenious as anything in The Ghost Writer or The Prague Orgy." —Hermione Lee, New Repubic

"A fiendishly clever piece of work...an amazing feat.... He's invented the purest speech, the most convincing cadences, of any American novelist." —William Pritchard, Hudson Review
