批評家のレビュー

"Roth's best.... No writer alive can sustain a full-length novel at as high a decibel level as Philip Roth." ( Newsweek)
"A very grand work...in invention, in perception...in coming to grips with the wild inconsistencies of life and art." ( New York)
"[ My Life as a Man is] a scalding, unique addition to the lasting literature about men and women."( Newsday)

あらすじ・解説

At its heart lies the marriage of Peter and Maureen Tarnopol, a gifted young writer and the woman who wants to be his muse but who instead is his nemesis. Their union is based on fraud and shored up by moral blackmail, but it is so perversely durable that, long after Maureen’s death, Peter is still trying—and failing—to write his way free of it.

Out of desperate inventions and cauterizing truths, acts of weakness, tenderheartedness, and shocking cruelty, Philip Roth creates a work worthy of Strindberg—a fierce tragedy of sexual need and blindness.

One of Roth's best books

Would you listen to My Life as a Man again? Why?

I would read Roth's novel again and again just as I read Don Quijote again and again. It's that good.

Roth Plays with the Characters inverting the relationship between author and character.

This was Roth's breakout novel.

If one liked His novel The Counterlife she or he will also love this book.

Whew

A treatise on how NOT to deal with someone with a borderline personality disorder. Roth portrayed, with a great amount of accuracy and pain, the thought patterns and entirely self-centered existence of someone who can only view the world through their own eyes and the emotionally fragile man ill equipped to handle her onslaught.

Disapointing read unfortunately

As a long time fan of Phillip Roth I found this waffling on sometimes inanely.

I’ve listened to this twice.

An interesting read. There are two stories back to back and I was pretty confused at some points because of the similarities of character, but that’s audio, can’t flick through and check what’s what. I will listen a third time at some point. I immediately loved Nemesis, also by Philip Roth, whereas this is more of a slow burn, but interesting.

Another tour du force from Philip Roth

Would you consider the audio edition of My Life as a Man to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version, but the audible version is so vivid, with the superb narrator, who narrates with passion and feeling, I don't feel the need to read the print version.

What other book might you compare My Life as a Man to, and why?

The Human Stain, because both deal with intelligent protagonists with a distinct self destroying character trait.

What does Dan John Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Passion, pace, intensity.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes.

Any additional comments?

I would like to hear more from the same author
