About this title

Synopsis:

A chronicle of the passion and desire of David Kepesh and of his endeavors, from adolescent accession to middle-aged ebb, to realize and sustain, with dignity, erotic happiness and domestic security

From the Back Cover:

"Ranks among the major achievements in the literature of our time." —Village Voice

"No one writing can juggle the somber and the ludicrous more adroitly than Roth." —Time

"Philip Roth is a great historian of modern eroticism.... [He] speaks of a sexuality that questions itself; it is still hedonism, but it is problematic, wounded, ironic hedonism. His is the uncommon union of confession and irony. Infinitely vulnerable in his sincerity and infinitely elusive in his irony." —Milan Kundera

"A thoughtful...elegant novel.... A fine display of literary skills." —The New York Times Book Review

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
