Reviews

"The Anatomy Lesson is a ferocious, heartfelt book...lavish with laughs and flamboyant inventions." --John Updike, The New Yorker

"Roth has a genius for the comedy of entrapment.... [He] writes America's most raucously funny novels." --Time

"One of Roth's most unsparing and revealing books...forceful and startling." --Newsday
