• "Startlingly, incandescently alive"

    New Yorker
  • "Unlike those of us who come howling into the world, blind and bare, Mr Roth appears with nails, hair, teeth, speaking coherently. He is skilled, witty, energetic and performs like a virtuoso"

    Saul Bellow
  • "A great novella - amazingly, this was Roth's first book - about love, sex and growing up"

  • "Opening the first page of any Philip Roth is like hearing the ignition on a boiler roar into life. Passion is what we're going to get, and plenty of it"
