    Goodbye, Columbus

    By: Philip Roth

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    Author of the bestselling Portnoy's Complaint and, more recently, I Married a Communist, Philip Roth's first book, Goodbye, Columbus, centres on the relationship between Neil Klugman, a poor Jewish librarian, and the very spoilt, precocious Brenda Patimkin, a Radcliffe girl from a nouveau riche family. Throughout one summer they swim, argue, eat and make love, largely under the Patimkin roof, until their personal and cultural differences begin to present seemingly insurmountable obstacles. This prize-winning novella and five short stories instantly made Philip Roth, at twenty-six, one of America's leading writers.

    'He is skilful, witty and energetic and performs like a virtuoso.'
    Saul Bellow, Commentary
