summer reading list – 1

I dug out Philip Roth’s Goodbye, Columbus. I’d already read (and loved) “Eli the Fanatic,” and so I started the book from the end, reading the short stories first, before going on to the novella Goodbye, Columbus.

    Funny, that one’s high on my “To re-read” list as well. And last Saturday night I watched Road to Morocco…what’s going on here?

    Early Roth is good. Later Roth is Outstanding! Among the so-called Jewish writers, Malamud, Bellow, Mailer and a few others, Roth was always considered a light-weight–esp becasue of Portnoy’s Complaint. Now he ranked at the very top, for Jewish and non-Jewish writers. He grew and grew and got increasingly inventive. His humor, post-modern (ugh, hate that crap) playfulness, irony, fake authobiography stuff–amazing. And has not yet abated.
