    While not as powerful as American Pastoral or as crazy as Portnoy s Complaint, the second installment in the Zuckerman Bound trilogy was a fun and quick read Here Nathan Zuckerman has just published a very controversial novel mirroring Roth s publication of the aforementioned Portnoy and is dealing with the sudden benefits and drawbacks of fame superficial affa

    Zuckerman Unbound 1981 , the second in Roth s Zuckerman Bound trilogy, is a sort of comic romp that turns gradually tragicomic Certainly serious, in the end Not Tolstoy, exactly, but maybe leaning to Chekhov, with some echoes of Kafka in there The novel features the writer Zuckerman, 20 years after the events of The Ghost Writer, which had Zuckerman at 20, having publis

    i must not be the only one who feels cheated when they read a roth novel, always expectingbecause of his super sized reputation only to find two dimensional characters, caricatures really, with evensimplistic portrayals of women to accompany his petty whining and shallow revelations do reviewers not dare criticize how lame it is to pat yourself on the back for a character s attempt at a one liner or note that every character delive

    The day before Philip Roth died, this book appeared on my office s giveaway shelf and I snagged it I don t think this coincidence has any cosmic significance, but it sure was convenient.I think Roth has fallen out of favor a bit among my peers even in his NYT obituary he was linked so emphatically to Updike and Bellow, and it s true that the sex crazed male novelists of the middle of the last century now seem perverse only in their ridiculo
