A true UKfirst edition / first printing, with 'First published in Great Britain 1978' on the copyright page (and no lager edition stated). A hilarious novel, set in England, about the amorous adventures of an American scholar. The book has been price-clipped, and there is a of touch of foxing. Also, a little shelfwear on the front of the jacket. Overall, a pleasing copy. We protect all our books with a removable plastic cover, and send them with care. N° de ref. de la librería 001235
Sinopsis: As a student in college, David Kepesh styles himself 'a rake among scholars, a scholar among rakes'. Little does he realise how prophetic this motto will be - or how damning. For as Philip Roth follows Kepesh from the domesticity of his childhood into the vast wilderness of erotic possibility, from a ménage à trois in London to the throes of loneliness in New York, he creates a supremely intelligent, affecting and often hilarious novel about the dilemma of pleasure: where we seek it; why we flee it; and how we struggle to make a truce between dignity and desire.
Críticas: "A thoughtful...elegant novel...A fine display of literary skills" New York Times Book Review "No one writing can juggle the somber and the ludicrous more adroitly than Roth" The Time "Philip Roth is a great historian of modern eroticism" Milan Kundera "A profound and commanding book... There is great beauty in it, humanity and tenderness" Sunday Telegraph "He writes so well. His prose is both elegant and furious. It can be witty, tender and brutal in a single paragraph" -- Melvyn Bragg
