Cuando Charles A. Lindbergh voló en 1927 desde Nueva York hasta Paris convirtiéndose en el primer aviador americano que cruzaba el Atlántico, el novelista Philip Roth aprovecha esta hazaña para imaginar qué hubiera pasado si Lindbergh hubiera llegado a convertirse en el Presidente de Estados Unidos, derrotando a Franklin Roosevelt en las elecciones de 1940. Lindbergh en esta novela llega a un trato con Hitler, como buen antisemita, de hecho la realidad es que en 1938 este héroe se trasladó a vivir a Alemania y se convirtió en líder del controvertido movimiento aislacionista americano y aceptó una condecoración del Führer. En 1941 el presidente Roosevelt criticó su postura neutralista ante la Segunda guerra Mundial y muchos de sus compatriotas lo tacharon de antisemita. Philip Roth convierte esa historia en ficción, imaginando qué hubiera pasado si este héroe hubiera gobernado América y habla de las siniestras consecuencias para miles de familias judías americanas

"David Kepesh is white-haired and over sixty, an eminent TV culture critic and star lecturer at a New York college, when he meets Consuela Castillo, a decorous, well-mannered student of twenty-four, the daughter of wealthy Cuban exiles, who promptly puts his life into erotic disorder." "Since the sexual revolution of the 1960s, when he left his wife and child, Kepesh has experimented with living what he calls an "emancipated manhood," beyond the reach of family or a mate. Over the years he has refined that exuberant decade of protest and license into an orderly life in which he is both unimpeded in the world of eros and studiously devoted to his aesthetic pursuits. But the youth and beauty of Consuela, "a masterpiece of volupte," undo him completely, and a maddening sexual possessiveness tranports him to the depths of deforming jealousy. The carefree erotic adventure evolves, over eight years, into a story of grim loss."--Jacket

"Un joven biógrafo inglés prepara un libro sobre el difunto escritor sudafricano John Coetzee. Sus investigaciones se centran en el Coetzee treintañero, en una época en la que el escritor compartía una destartalada casa en Ciudad del Cabo con su padre viudo y en la que, en opinión del joven biógrafo, comenzaba a encontrarse a sí mismo como escritor. Sin haberlo conocido personalmente, el biógrafo se embarca en una serie de entrevistas con personas que fueron importantes en su vida: una mujer casada con la que tuvo una aventura amorosa, su prima Margot y una bailarina brasileña, madre de una de sus alumnas de inglés. De sus testimonios emerge el retrato de un joven Coetzee algo torpe, rodeado de libros, con poca facilidad para abrirse a los demás y entregado a su imperiosa necesidad de escribir"

Nemesis by Philip Roth( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"¿Qué tipo de decisiones determinan fatalmente una vida? ¿Cómo el individuo resiste la arremetida de las circunstancias? Estos son algunos de los aciagos interrogantes que animan Las némesis, el cuarteto de novelas cortas temáticamente relacionadas que publicamos por primera vez en España en un solo volumen. Elegía (2006) es una historia íntima y universal que trata sobre la lucha crónica de un hombre contra la muerte. Indignación (2008) es el extraordinario relato sobre un joven que se opone al conformismo de la América de la era McCarthy y el temor atroz de su padre ante los peligros del mundo. En La humillación (2009), el consagrado actor Simon Axler se embarca en una relación aberrante y arriesgada, en un desesperado intento por recuperar la magia y el talento perdidos. Y en Nemésis (2010), Roth nos ofrece un retrato fiel de las emociones--el miedo, la cólera, el desconcierto, el sufrimiento y el dolor-- que afloran a raíz de una epidemia de polio que asola la comunidad de Newark durante el verano de 1944. En estas cuatro novelas sobre el miedo y la mortalidad, Philip Roth se confirma como uno de los grandes escritores de este siglo, merecedor, entre otras distinciones, de los premios Pulitzer y Príncipe de Asturias de las Letras 2012."--
