Pastorale americana - Philip Roth

Product Description

Pastorale americana - Philip Roth

letto da Massimo Popolizio

Al liceo di Newark lo chiamavano lo Svedese. Alto, biondo, atletico, Levov è un ragazzo ebreo che pare destinato a incarnare perfettamente il sogno americano di prosperità e felicità famigliare. Nei floridi anni del dopoguerra, Levov sposa l’ex Miss New Jersey, eredita dal padre una fabbrica di guanti e si trasferisce nell’agognata villetta. La vita sembra sorridergli, fino a quel giorno del 1968 in cui ogni cosa deflagra, mandando a pezzi la sua idilliaca esistenza. Scritto con dolore, rabbia e compassione per i suoi personaggi, è il capolavoro assoluto di Philip Roth.

Here is Philip Roth's masterpiece--an elegy for the American century's promises of prosperity, civic order, and domestic bliss. Roth's protagonist is Swede Levov, a legendary athlete at his Newark high school, who grows up in the booming postwar years to marry a former Miss New Jersey, inherit his father's glove factory, and move into a stone house in the idyllic hamlet of Old Rimrock. And then one day in 1968, Swede's beautiful American luck deserts him. 
For Swede's adored daughter, Merry, has grown from a loving, quick-witted girl into a sullen, fanatical teenager--a teenager capable of an outlandishly savage act of political terrorism. And overnight Swede is wrenched out of the longed-for American pastoral and into the indigenous American berserk. Compulsively readable, propelled by sorrow, rage, and a deep compassion for its characters, American Pastoral gives us Philip Roth at the height of his powers.
