Nathan Zuckerman returns to New York in the long-awaited final installment of Philip Roth’s renowned Zuckerman series.

Alone for eleven years on his New England mountain, Zuckerman has been nothing but a writer: no media, no terrorist threats, no women, no tasks other than his work and the enduring of old age.

Walking the streets of New York after so many years away, he quickly makes three connections that explode his carefully protected solitude. Suddenly involved, as he never wanted or intended to be again, with love, mourning, desire, and animosity, Zuckerman plays out an interior drama of vivid and poignant possibilities.

    " Very clever, slightly weird, funny and satirical, a bit intellectual, obsessive reading...i'm not entirely sure what i thought of this book, to be honest. Did i enjoy it? I'm not sure "enjoy" is the right word. It was a good read, although slow to start with it soon picked up, but i'm left feeling slightly frustrated as i don't think the story has been resolved...at least not to my satisfaction. But what do i know? This is my first Philip Roth book, so maybe thats typical. "

    " This was my first experience with Roth. The story was excellent though I had a lot of difficulty identifying with an impotent, incontinent septuagenarian protagonist. Roth is also very much a writers writer, the story is packed with references to Conrad, Mailer, Keats and other authors that, while I may have read, I have nowhere near the familiarity with their work that Roth does. I think for my next encounter with Roth I will jump back a few decades to meet Norman Zukerman in his younger, wilder days. "

    " Nathan Zuckerman has lived a life of a kind of a recluse in the Berkshires until he has to go to NYC for a doctor's appt. While there he stumbles across someone he met once forty years earlier. This leads to some rash decisions that he is not able to cope with both physically and mentally. All in all, the good empathize with Zuckerman's shortcomings, but after awhile I began to view him as a whiner. The book really never got going enough for me. "
