This is his masterpiece. Roth is the master of exactitude. All the nuances and events are there for a reason. If you've never read Roth, I strongly recommend this one.

I'll preface this by saying that this is a challenging novel, but if you allow yourself to get pulled in, you will be blown away by its depth. I sympathized with the protagonist as much as I ever have for a fictional character. My only criticism is the ending, which I don't think did this book justice.

dynsfunctional people, so little time.
