"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.
