Reviews

"Philip Roth's American Pastoral is one of those books you know is going to change you in some profound way shortly after you start reading it and it did for me. I read it last summer and nothing has quite surpassed it for me since. A very painful read." -- Angea Nagle * Irish Times * "Marvellous... Raging and elegaic" * Guardian * "A tragedy of classical proportions...a magnificent novel" * The Times * "Utterly tragic and compelling. It's one of the greatest modern American novels" * Tatler * "Wonderful, rich...entirely gripping" * Sunday Telegraph * "A momentous novel" * Observer * "Full of insight, full of sharp ironic twists, full of wisdom about American idealism, and full of terrific fun... A profound and personal meditation on the changes in the American psyche over the last fifty years" * Financial Times * "Brilliantly written...angry, grieving, witty, acute...compellingly and convincingly rendered" * Sunday Times *
