The Human Stain.

ROTH, Philip.


Item Number: 71844

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 2000.

First edition of Roth’s award-winning novel. Octavo, original half cloth. From the library of fellow novelist John Barth, with his signature to the half-title page. Barth won the National Book Award in fiction for his novel Chimera. Signed by Philip Roth on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Michaela Sullivan. A nice association.

"In terms of sheer productivity, brilliance, distinctly American diction, philosophical rage, comic irritability, dramatic representations of solitude, uniqueness of voice and unwavering repugnance toward heterosexual convention, it is difficult to think of a contemporary artist with whom Philip Roth might even be compared." In this novel, which won the 2001 Pen/Faulkner Award for Fiction, Roth has created "an astonishing often very beautiful book" (New York Times). It was made into the motion picture starring Anthony Hopkins and Nicole Kidman.
