Descripción

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.
