Time calls Philip Roth “the uncontested master of comic irony.” He is a bestseller and the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, the National Book Award, and the Pulitzer Prize in fiction.

The Counterlife brings back Roth’s most notorious character, the novelist Nathan Zuckerman. Now Nathan’s married brother, Henry the dentist, is suffering from impotence as a result of taking heart medication-and he’s willing to risk his life in a dangerous operation just to regain his sexual prowess in order to satisfy the needs of his office assistant.

About the Narrator

George Guidall, winner of eighty-eight AudioFile Earphones Awards, has twice won the prestigious Audie Award for Excellence in Audiobook Narration. In 2014 the Audio Publishers Association presented him with the Special Achievement Award for an audiobook narrator of exceptional stature and accomplishment. During his thirty-year recording career he has recorded over 1,100 audiobooks, won multiple awards, been a mentor to many narrators, and shown by example the potential of fine storytelling. Among Guidall’s narration achievements are Crime and Punishment, The Iliad, and John Irving’s A Widow for One Year, which earned him an Audie Award for best unabridged narration of a novel, an honor he captured again for his rendition of Wally Lamb’s I Know This Much Is True. Guidall’s forty-year acting career includes starring roles on Broadway, an Obie Award for best performance off Broadway, and frequent television appearances.
