I Married a Communist proves that, following the success of Sabbath's Theater and American Pastoral, Roth remains on extraordinary form - wonderful storytelling and characterisation. (Erica Wagner Guardian, Books of the Year)
Knotted with energy, barely wasting a scene or a word in its cracking velocity. (Philip Hensher Mail on Sunday)
A passionate and coruscating American tragedy. (Financial Times)
Roth explores our expedients and tragedies with a masterly, often unnerving, blend of tenderness, harshness, insight and wit - a gripping novel. (New York Times Book Review)
Roth remains as edgy, as furious, as funny, and as dangerous as he was forty years ago. (New York Review of Books)
Radio actor Iron Rinn (born Ira Ringold) is a big Newark roughneck blighted by a brutal personal secret from which he is perpetually in flight. An idealistic Communist , an uneducated ditchdigger turned popular performer, a six-foot, six-inch Abe Lincoln lookalike, he emerges from serving in World War II passionately committed to making this world a better place and winds up instead blacklisted and unemployable, his life in ruins.
On his way to his political catastrophe, he marries the nation's reigning radio actress and beloved silent film star, the exquisitely refined Eve Frame (born Chava Fromkin). Their marriage evolves from a glamorous, romantic idyll in a tasteful Manhattan townhouse to a dispiriting soap opera of tears and treachery. And, with Eve's dramatic revelation to the gossip columnist Clifford Grant of her husband's life of 'espionage' for the Soviet Union, the relationship enlarges from private drama into national scandal.
Set in the heart of the McCarthy era, the story of Iron Rinn's denunciation and disgrace is narrated years later by his brother, Murray Ringold, whose former student, the adolescent Nathan Zuckerman, was the radio actor's adoring protege in the late forties.(1998-07-17)
