Exit Ghost - Philip Roth

Issue No. 2120

The ageing and ill Nathan Zuckerman, the acclaimed US writer Philip Roth’s alter-ego, returns to New York in November 2004, just before George Bush’s re-election.

After years in isolation on a New England mountain, he revisits his old haunts, makes new connections with people and meets old friends.

He offers to swap homes with a couple from Manhattan desperate to leave New York, so he can return to the city.

This, the ninth Zuckerman novel, is a searing critique of the modern US from one of its best writers.
