I have mixed feelings about Philip Roth. I've read many of his books and enjoyed some of them. But, Roth's women characters can be disturbing.

The most recent ones I read and recommend are the very disturbing THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA - especially given the last two years, and NEMESIS, about the polio epidemic in the early 1950s.

Thanks for the link to Megan's piece. I've just started AMERICAN PASTORAL.
