About this title

Synopsis:

A ferocious political satire in the great tradition, Our Gang is Philip Roth’s brilliantly indignant response to the phenomenon of Richard M. Nixon.

In the character of Trick E. Dixon, Roth shows us a man who outdoes the severest cynic, a peace-loving Quaker and believer in the sanctity of human life who doesn’t have a problem with killing unarmed women and children in self-defense. A master politician with an honest sneer, he finds himself battling the Boy Scouts, declaring war on Pro-Pornography Denmark, all the time trusting in the basic indifference of the voting public.

From the Back Cover:

"Disturbing, logical...and very funny.... In short, a masterpiece."—The New York Times Book Review

"Perhaps the funniest and most complex exercise in sustained political satire since Animal Farm." — Newsweek

"Outrageously hilarious." —Saturday Review of Books

"Brilliant satire in the real Swift tradition." —Anthony Burgess
