Reviews
"Letting Go is further proof of Mr. Roth's astonishing talent.... Its emotional tension is nerve-racking, its psychological insight convincing. Mr. Roth has a phenomenal ear for colloquial dialogue. He is an effective storyteller.... Letting Go seethes with life.... The most talented novelist under 30 in America." --The New York Times

"A first novel of awesome maturity." --James Atlas

"A rich book, full of incident, wry and sad and even in its most desolating scene somehow amusing." --Elizabeth Hardwick, Harper's

"[Roth] has the finest eye for the details of American life since Sinclair Lewis." --Stanley Edgar Hyman
