's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: jewish-lit

I'll borrow from Richard Brody's recent piece on this novel: "Just as [The Plot Against America] has, in the time of Donald Trump’s Presidency, come to seem eerily prescient, it turns out that Roth’s description of the spread of polio, and the (fictitious) effect of the disease on his childhood community, similarly foretells, in many of its crucial practical details, the lines of stress that the coronavirus pandemic is revealing worldwide."
