it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, history
Recommended for: history buffs, political radicals, people who think
Read in April, 2007

this book is an amazingly heartbreaking account of what happens to an american jewish family when charles lindbergh is elected president instead of fdr having a third term. it is told from the point of view of roth as a child, a particularly insightful and heart-rendering narrator. written as an obvious commentary on the state of our world today, this is a really terrifying book that i highly recommend to anyone who likes to challenge her/himself with difficult thoughts.
