Philip Roth's richly imagined satiric narrative, The Great American Novel, turns baseball's status as national pastime and myth into an unfettered farce featuring heroism and perfidy, lively wordplay and a cast of characters that includes the House Un-American Activities Committee. Why, I could write a whole book just on the types beginning with X who have called out in anguish to yours truly-make it an encyclopedia, given that mob you come across in one lifetime who like to tell you they are quits with the past. Smitty, I’ve got to talk to somebody. Smitty, I’ve got a story for you.

This is the funniest book Philip Roth wrote. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard before. It might help if you're a baseball fan, but even if you know nothing about baseball, you can still enjoy this book. For me the entire story of this book is that it ultimately fails as a satire. Пользовательский отзыв - AliceAnna - ww. ibrarything. I loved this book 30 years ago. Now, not so much. So much ugly misogynism and racism.

Bought this for my husband's 65th birthday. He remembered seeing it years ago but never read it. I heard him laughing out loud at times which made me happy.

This is the funniest book Philip Roth wrote. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard before. It might help if you're a baseball fan, but even if you know nothing about baseball, you can still enjoy this book. It's really more about a bygone era ( the 1920-40's ) than it is about baseball.

The quality of the printing is really terrible. It’s as if they used an old fax machine. Had to order a different copy from a different edition in case it’s a systemic problem. Couldn’t finish this copy because the poor quality was hurting my eyes

I have read this book dozens of times - I used to read it every spring when baseball season starts! It is so funny! One of my all time favorite books!

I first read this long ago, and needed to replace my lost copy. It is a must-read for every baseball fan, and the perfect start to the summer season! Go Mundys!!
