Roth's late masterpiece, finished just before his death in 1995; about a young Jewish boy growing up in the slums of New York in the early part of the Twentieth century. (Though Roth planned this as a six-volume set and wrote most of it, his editors thought the first four volumes made a more cohesive narrative. The other two volumes were later published as 'An American Type').
