The Human Stain, Paperback / softback Book

The Human Stain Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The American psyche is channelled into the gripping story of one man.

This is the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Philip Roth at his very best.

It is 1998, the year America is plunged into a frenzy of prurience by the impeachment of a president.

In a small New England town a distinguished professor, Coleman Silk, is forced to retire when his colleagues allege that he is a racist.

The charge is unfounded, the persecution needless, but the truth about Silk would astonish even his most virulent accuser.

Coleman Silk has a secret that he has kept for fifty years.

This is the conclusion to Roth's brilliant trilogy of post-war America - a story of seismic shifts in American history and a personal search for renewal and regeneration. 'An extraordinary book - bursting with rage, humming with ideas, full of dazzling sleights of hand' Sunday Telegraph
