I had read _Portnoy's Complaint_ a few years ago and really liked it, but it lacks the grace and poignancy of these earlier stories. The novella "Goodbye, Columbus" is sort of a Mysteries-of-Pittsburgh-for-the-1950s, exploring class identity and roma ...more

I read this book when I was 14 or 15 and haven't been able to shake it since. It was too long ago for me to have read it as critically or to appreciate it as much as I would now, but I know it was chilling and important and more thought-provoking tha ...more
