Best Selling Book 1969

 "A disorder in which strongly felt ethical and altruistic impulses are perpetually warring with extreme sexual longings, often of a perverse nature..."


  1. "The English language is a form of communication! Conversation isn’t just crossfire where you shoot and get shot at! Where you’ve got to duck for your life and aim to kill! Words aren’t only bombs and bullets—no, they’re little gifts, containing meanings!" ~ Philip Roth

  2. Great book.
    Read it in 1980 or '81.
    Might be time to re-read it.

  3. So funny - Today on the front page of the local newspaper in these parts, there is a large photo of Philip Roth with the headline "Still Going Strong At 80."

  4. Yes. I totally forgot that until I saw today's newspaper.
