The famous confession of Alexander Portnoy's who is thrust through life by his unappeasable sexuality, yet held back at the same time by the iron grip of his unforgetable childhood.

About The Author

Award-winning author Philip Roth has made a career of confronting the heartbreaking dissolution of relationships, the absurdity of sexual neuroses, and the downside of his own literary fame. Many of his readers believe that Roth has been merely writing his own story for nearly fifty years. However, the author refuses to offer such speculators any simple answers, saying of his characters, It's all me. Nothing is me."

Industry Reviews

"The most scandalous book of the year and probably the decade." -- John Sutherland * The Times * "The most outrageously funny book about sex yet written" * Guardian * "A hysterically funny monologue which has already added a new prototype to American literature... Anyone who can recall anything of the awesome mystery and humiliating farce of growing up will find this book compulsive reading. And it is blessedly, extremely funny" * Spectator * "Philip Roth's gift for fantasy, his superb dialogue, his ability to evoke places and atmospheres, make Portnoy's Complaint at once hilariously, scabrously funny and deeply moving" * Financial Times * "Alexander Portnoy is a great comic character. He is going to be for many readers what his mother was for him: The Most Unforgettable Character I've Met" * New Statesman *
