• Philip Roth is a great historian of modern eroticism

    Milan Kundera
  • A thoughtful, even gentle, stylistically elegant novel about the paradox of male desire, that lacerating passion which may lead to happiness but cannot survive it

    New York Times Book Review
  • He writes so well. His prose is both elegant and furious. It can be witty, tender and brutal in a single paragraph

    Melvyn Bragg
  • No one writing can juggle the somber and the ludicrous more adroitly than Roth

    The Time
  • A profound and commanding book... There is great beauty in it, humanity and tenderness

    Sunday Telegraph
