Product description

Review

'Roth is one of the great addictive writers of the first half of the 20th century. He is witty, profound, surprising and melancholy. The paradox is this: no-one is fundamentally more pessimistic; no writer is more affirmative' The Scotsman 'The poet Michael Hofmann has performed such an invaluable service that it's a shame that the minting of medals has gone out of fashion.' Evening Standard 'Clearly illustrate the qualities that make his prose so distinctive' The Sunday Telegraph
