It is the year in which America is whipped into a frenzy of prurience by the impeachment of a president and in a small New England town an aging Classics professor Coleman Silk is forced to retire when his colleagues decree that he is a racist The charge is a lie but the real truth about Silk would astonish even his most virulent accuser br br Coleman Silk has a secret one which has been kept for fifty years from his wife his four children his colleagues and his friends including the writer Nathan Zuckerman It is Zuckerman who stumbles upon Silk s secret and sets out to reconstruct the unknown biography of this eminent upright man esteemed as an educator for nearly all his life and to understand how this ingeniously contrived life came unraveled And to understand also how Silk s astonishing private history is in the words of the Wall Street Journal magnificently interwoven with the larger public history of modern America, Philip Roth s new novel is a candidly intimate yet universal story of loss regret and stoicism The bestselling author of i The Plot Against America i now turns his attention from one family s harrowing encounter with history i New York Times i to one man s lifelong skirmish with mortality br br The fate of Roth s everyman is traced from his first shocking confrontation with death on the idyllic beaches of his childhood summers through the family trials and professional achievements of his vigorous adulthood and into his old age when he is rended by observing the deterioration of his contemporaries and stalked by his own physical woes br br The terrain of this powerful novel is the human body Its subject is the common experience that terrifies us all, i The Ghost Writer i introduces Nathan Zuckerman in the s a budding writer infatuated with the Great Books discovering the contradictory claims of literature and experience while an overnight guest in the secluded New England farmhouse of his literary idol E I Lonoff br br At Lonoff s Zuckerman meets Amy Bellette a haunting young woman of indeterminate foreign background who turns out to be a former student of Lonoff s and who may also have been his mistress Zuckerman with his active youthful imagination wonders if she could be the paradigmatic victim of Nazi persecution If she were it might change his life br br The first volume of the trilogy and epilogue i Zuckerman Bound The Ghost Writer i is about the tensions between literature and life artistic truthfulness and conventional decency and about those implacable practitioners who live with the consequences of sacrificing one for the other, b Sabbath s Theater b is a comic creation of epic proportions and Mickey Sabbath is its gargantuan hero Once a scandalously inventive puppeteer Sabbath at sixty four is still defiantly antagonistic and exceedingly libidinous But after the death of his long time mistress an erotic free spirit whose adulterous daring surpassed even his own Sabbath embarks on a turbulent journey into his past Bereft and grieving besieged by the ghosts of those who loved and hated him most he contrives a succession of farcical disasters that take him to the brink of madness and extinction
