Recommended for: Anyone interested in reading a modern-day classic
Read in September, 2007

I have already read "The Plot Against America," but nothing prepared me for this book. Roth is brilliant with his use of language and sense of place. I sincerely believe he deserves a Nobel prize. I am not Jewish, but feel as if I learned a lot about their cultural mores from reading this book. I highly recommend this, especially to any aspiring writers. You will find his writing masterful.
