Toronto author Cary Fagan has steadily developed a reputation as a writer of articulate and entertaining novels and short stories. Felix Roth, his eighth work of fiction, confirms Fagan as a writer of measurable talent. Fagan writes with the grace of a master stylist, like an early Philip Roth. As the novel begins, 20-year-old Felix Roth sits beside his brother Aaron on an airplane descending into New York City circa 1979. Concerned about Aaron’s attraction to a community of Orthodox Jews, Felix’s Toronto-based family has sent him to chaperone his brother’s quest. Felix, who writes for a financial services newsletter, has other plans and Aaron all but disappears from the novel as our protagonist self-consciously unravels his own bildungsroman, exploring the New York he learned to love by reading that city’s great Jewish writers.
