Actually, just finished reading.
A disappointing, slight book from Roth. It's a book that won't appease the feminist critics (or many women at all, come to that). After the electric resurgence of (approx -) Sabbaths Theatre through The Plot Against America, it seems that Roth, in an effort to beat Father Time, is cranking out books at too fast a pace; the quality is deteriorating. It's one thing (and not a small thing either) for Woody Allen to crank out films at the rate of one per year, but Roth churning out novels at a similar pace? It's still astonishing.
I'm reviewing the book for The Austin American Statesman. It's due in early November.
And, I know, this has nothing to do with images. But did I mention the change in philosophy behind this site?
