Philip Roth's career has spanned more than 40 years, in which he has produced over 20 books and won almost every major literary award. The Jewish-American writer's work is a search for form that takes him from social realism, through comedy and fantasy to pseudo-confessional metafiction and a post-modern aesthetic. Paul McDonald explores each of Roth's works in turn, from his first book Goodbye Columbus (1959) to The Dying Animal (2001). McDonald shows that although Roth writes about the human condition in often provocative and unusual ways, his treatment is witty, engaging and always based on ethical values.
