And it's not the secret of his alleged racism, which provoked the college witchhunt that cost him his job. Coleman's secret is deeper, and lies at the very core of who he is, and he has kept it hidden from everyone for fifty years.

Οι συνεντεύξεις, τα δοκίμια και τα άρθρα που συμπεριλαμβάνονται στο παρόν βιβλίο καλύπτουν τα πρώτα είκοσι πέντε χρόνια της συγγραφικής σταδιοδρομίας του Φίλιπ Ροθ, αποκαλύπτοντας πόσο τον απασχολεί "η σχέση ανάμεσα στον γραπτό και τον άγραφο κόσμο". Ο Ροθ μιλάει εδώ για τον εαυτό του και το έργο του, ανασκευάζοντας παρερμηνείες και απαντώντας στις επικρίσεις των ομοθρήσκων του.

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0372

Gill Gamesh, the only pitcher who ever literally tried to kill the umpire. The ex-con first baseman, John Baal, 'The Babe Ruth of the Big House,' who never hit a home run sober. If you've never heard of them - or of the Ruppert Mundys, the only homeless big-league ball team in American history - it's because of the Communist plot, and the capitalist scandal, that expunged the entire Patriot League from baseball memory. In this ribald, richly imagined, and wickedly satiric novel, Philip Roth turns baseball's status as national pastime and m...

(P/B) THE BREAST
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0370

Like a latter-day Gregor Samsa, Professor David Kepesh wakes up one morning to find that he has been transformed. But where Kafka's protagonist turned into a giant beetle, the narrator of Philip Roth's richly conceived fantasy has become a 155-pound female breast. What follows is a deliriously funny yet touching exploration of the full implications of Kepesh's metamorphosis - a daring, heretical book that brings us face to face with the intrinsic strangeness of sex and subjectivity.
