♦ Description :“Fourth cover – After thirty-six years, Zuckerman the writer finds Seymour Levov said “the Swede”, the star athlete of his high school in Newark.Always so splendid, Levov the invincible, the generous, the idol of the war years, the grandson of Jewish immigrants has become an American more real than life. The Swede managed his life, flourishing the paternal glove, marrying the very Irish Miss New Jersey 1949, reigning far away from the city on an old stone mansion framed by maples centenarians: the American pastoral. But the picture is incomplete. Out of the field, there is Merry, the rebellious girl, and with it emerges, in this idyllic pen, the specter of another America in convulsion, that of the sixties, of St. Angela Davis, the streets of Newark over fire and to blood …”

Author Biography

Biography

“Philip Roth”

* In tribute to the great writer Philip Roth (1933-2018), Nonfiction republishes the criticism of the biography of Claudia Roth Pierpont.

In 2010, after the publication of Nemesis, the American writer Philip Roth decides that he will not write more books. Disappointed by the latest novel of his friend he is a fervent admirer, Saul Bellow, he concludes that an author should not write after the age of 80 years. This literary retreat is an opportunity for her biographer, Claudia Roth Pierpont (no family ties unites them despite her name), to browse the work and life of Philip Roth to deliver a thorough analysis of his novels and his posture writer.

The author gives an in-depth examination of Philip Roth’s evolution as a writer, through the evocation of his favorite themes: Jews, sex and love, sex without love, meaning of life, the meaning of his own life, his parents, American ideals, the upheavals of the 1960s, the human body in its beauty, in disease, the ravages of age, or even death.

Specialist of the work of the writer, Claudia Roth Pierpont has, as it is stated on the back cover, long been part of the circle of first readers to which the writer sent his manuscripts for opinion. This book is the result of many conversations with the writer but also with some of his relatives. The author specifies that Philip Roth has agreed not to read a single line before publication. The book being rather laudatory, it is doubtful that the writer would have wished in the contrary case prevented its publication.

Description : In 'the stifling heat of equatorial Newark', a terrifying epidemic is raging, threatening the children of the New Jersey city with maiming, paralysis, life-long disability, even death. This is the startling and surprising theme of Roth's wrenching new book: a wartime polio epidemic in the summer of 1944 and the effect it has on a closely-knit, family-oriented Newark community and its children. At the centre of Nemesis is a vigorous, dutiful, twenty-three-year old playground director, Bucky Cantor, a javelin thrower and a weightlifter, who is devoted to his charges and disappointed with himself because his weak eyes have excluded him from serving in the war alongside his contemporaries. Focusing on Cantor's dilemmas as polio begins to ravage his playground - and on the everyday realities he faces - Roth leads us through every inch of emotion such a pestilence can breed: the fear, the panic, the anger, the bewilderment, the suffering, and the pain. Moving between the smouldering, malodorous streets of besieged Newark and Indian Hill, a pristine children's summer camp high in the Poconos - whose 'mountain air was purified of all contaminants' - Roth depicts a decent, energetic man with the best intentions struggling in his own private war against the epidemic. Roth is tenderly exact at every point about Cantor's passage into personal disaster and no less exact about the condition of childhood. Through this story runs the dark question that haunts all four of Roth's late short novels, Everyman, Indignation, The Humbling, and now, Nemesis: what choices fatally shape a life? How powerless is each of us up against the force of circumstances? "Nemesis" written by Philip Roth with ISBN_13 9780099555339 and ISBN_10 0099555336 with total page sheets [-304-].
