Ebook description:

The Counterlife is a novel not like any that Philip Roth has written earlier than, a guide of astonishing 180-degree turns, a guide of conflicting views and factors of view, and, by far, Roth’s most radical work of fiction. The Counterlife is about folks enacting their desires of renewal and escape, a few of them going as far as to threat their lives to change seemingly irreversible destinies. Each main character (and many of the minor ones) is investigating, debating, and arguing the potential of remaking the long run. Illuminating these lives in transition and guiding us by all of the landscapes, acquainted and international, the place these individuals are looking for self-transformation, is the thoughts of the novelist Nathan Zuckerman. His is the skeptical, enveloping intelligence that calculates the worth that is paid within the wrestle to vary private fortune and to reshape historical past. But his is hardly the one voice. This can be a novel wherein talking out with power and lucidity seems to be the crucial of each life. There’s Henry, the forty-year-old New Jersey dentist, who dangers a quintuple bypass operation with a view to escape the coronary treatment that renders him sexually impotent. There’s Maria, the wellborn younger Englishwoman, who invitations the disdain of her household by marrying the American she is aware of can be lease acceptable in Gloucestershire. There’s Lippmann, the Israeli settlement chief, who contends that “every little thing is feasible for the Jew if solely he doesn’t give floor.” The motion in The Counterlife ranges from a dentist’s workplace in quiet suburban New Jersey to a genteel eating desk in a tradition-bound English village, from a Christmas carol service in London’s West Finish to a Sabbath night celebration in a tiny desert settlement in Israel’s occupied West Financial institution. Wherever they might find themselves, the characters of The Counterlife are tempted unceasingly by the prospect of an alternate existence that may reverse their destiny. The Counterlife was a finalist for the Nationwide Ebook Award and winner of the Nationwide Ebook Critics Circle Award
