Zuckerman bound : a trilogy and epilogue 1979-1985 by Philip Roth( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents the trilogy of novellas and epilogue that constitute Zuckerman Bound (1985), Philip Roth's original investigation into the unforeseen consequences of art - mainly in libertarian America and then, by contrast, in Soviet-suppressed Eastern Europe - during the latter half of the twentieth century."--Jacket
Novels & other narratives, 1986-1991 by Philip Roth( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the last half century, the novels of Philip Roth have re-energized American fiction and redefined its possibilities, leading the critic Harold Bloom to proclaim Roth "our foremost novelist since Faulkner." Roth's comic genius, his imaginative daring, his courage in exploring uncomfortable truths, and his assault on political, cultural, and sexual orthodoxies have made him one of the essential writers of our time. By special arrangement with the author, The Library of America continues the definitive edition of Roth's collected works. This fifth volume of The Library of America's definitive edition of Philip Roth's collected works presents four books that exemplify the description of Roth, proposed by British novelist Anthony Burgess, as a writer "who never steps twice into the same river." The Counterlife (1986) is a novel told from conflicting perspectives about people enacting drastic dreams of renewal and escape. The Facts (1988), the first of the Roth Books, is a novelist's autobiography in which the author presents his own battles defictionalized and unadorned. In the second Roth book, Deception (1990), a married American named Philip, living in London, and the married Englishwoman who is his mistress meet sporadically in a secret trysting place where the woman eloquently reveals herself to her lover as they talk before and after making love. In the third Roth book, Patrimony (1991), the author watches as his 86-year-old father, Herman Roth, battles a fatal brain tumor

Novels 2001-2007 : the dying animal ; The plot against America ; Exit ghost by Philip Roth( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plot against America: Roth creates a mesmerizing alternate world as well, in which Charles A. Lindbergh defeats FDR in the 1940 presidential election, and Philip, his parents and his brother weather the storm in Newark, N.J. Incorporating Lindbergh's actual radio address in which he accused the British and the Jews of trying to force America into a foreign war, Roth builds an eerily logical narrative that shows how isolationists in and out of government, emboldened by Lindbergh's blatant anti-Semitism (he invites von Rippentrop to the White House, etc.), enact new laws and create an atmosphere of religious hatred that culminates in nationwide pogroms

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ruination of Block 37 is a quintessential Chicago story, and Ross Miller tells it with the passion of a native and the blistering honesty of a classic muck-raker, laying the blame for this debacle squarely at the feet of those who should have cared most for the well-being of a great city. But he goes beyond "location" to show that this is a quintessential American story as well, one that holds important lessons for all of us."--BOOK JACKET

Here's the deal : the making and breaking of a great American city by Ross Miller( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before there was Ground Zero in New York City, Block 37 was a giant hole in the heart of a great American city. In 1990, Chicago's Block 37 (as a key part of a twenty-seven-acre urban renewal project) was razed to the ground. This stubborn vacancy at the center of Chicago's historic downtown eerily presaged the post-9/11 wasteland in Lower Manhattan." "In a new introduction, Ross Miller makes the historical and political connections necessary to understand how modern city planning and redevelopment really work. By exploring one American urban block in meticulous detail, Miller clarifies the opaque process that continually breaks and remakes our cities. Told with the scrupulousness of scholarship and the excitement of a novel, Here's the Deal is a modern classic of urban literature."--BOOK JACKET
Levels of assessment : from the student to the institution by Ross Miller( Book )

Novels, 1993-1995 by Philip Roth( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This sixth volume of The Library of America's definitive edition of Philip Roth's collected works gathers two novels that marked the beginning of a decade-long creative explosion--one remarkable in an older writer and one heralded by critics as unparalleled in American literary history. In the fiendishly imaginative Operation Shylock, Philip Roth encounters a look-alike who claims Roth's identity and who tours Israel promoting a bizarre reverse exodus of the Jews--a look-alike whose proselytizing in his name the authentic Roth is intent on stopping, even if that means impersonating his own impersonator. "This splendidly wicked book" is how the critic Frank Kermode described Sabbath's Theater (1995), Roth's comic creation of epic proportions, whose gargantuan hero, Mickey Sabbath, grieving the loss of his unsurpassable mistress, embarks on a turbulent journey into his past besieged by the ghosts of those who loved and hated him most. --notes by editor Ross Miller
