"At 71, Roth has produced a sensation with The Plot Against America, casting the post-September 11 era in a chilling new light." (The Sunday Times)
"In The Plot against America, Philip Roth has reasserted the supremacy of the novel over all other literary forms. This is the first fictional masterpiece of the 21st century, and it rings entirely true." (Norman Lebrecht, Evening Standard)
"An extraordinary description of how history can encroach upon ordinary lives." (The Economist)
"A bravura exercise in alternative history In the most humanely affecting scenes he has written, Roth depicts the frightened, stubborn courage with which figures like his parents and their neighbours in a Jewish working-class community attempt to brave the ordeal." (Peter Kemp The Sunday Times)
"A wonderfully inventive commentary on our beloved 'special relation'. Roth has woven his magic around a great 'what if?' Rivetingly told, with some nasty reminders of possibility." (Jon Snow Observer)
When the renowned aviation hero and rabid isolationist Charles A. Lindbergh defeated Franklin Roosevelt by a landslide in the 1940 presidential election, fear invaded every Jewish household in America. Not only had Lindbergh, in a nationwide radio address, publicly blamed the Jews for selfishly pushing America towards a pointless war with Nazi Germany, but, upon taking office as the 33rd president of the United States, he negotiated a cordial 'understanding' with Adolf Hitler, whose conquest of Europe and whose virulent anti-Semitic policies he appeared to accept without difficulty.
What then followed in America is the historical setting for this startling new novel by Pulitzer-prize winner Philip Roth, who recounts what it was like for his Newark family - and for a million such families all over the country - during the menacing years of the Lindbergh presidency, when American citizens who happened to be Jews had every reason to expect the worst.
