About this item

Seymour Levov, modelo a seguir por todos los muchachos judíos de New Jersey, es un gran atleta y mejor hijo, y es el sólido heredero de la fábrica de guantes que su padre levantó desde la nada.



Seymour ha rebasado la mitad del siglo xx sin conflictos que puedan estropear la vida placentera que comparte con su mujer Dawn, ex Miss New Jersey, y con su hija Meredith.
Seymour Levov, Sin embargo, precisamente ahora, todo lo que lo rodea se derrumbará estrepitosamente.


«En la actual literatura norteamericana está Philip Roth y, después, todos los demás.»

Chicago Tribune

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

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, quickwitted
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.
