The Plot Against America Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'He captures better than anyone the collision of public and private, the intrusion of history into the skin, the pores of every individual alive' Guardian'Though on the morning after the election disbelief prevailed, especially among the pollsters, by the next everybody seemed to understand everything...' When celebrity aviator, Charles A.

Lindbergh, wins the 1940 presidential election on the slogan of 'America First', fear invades every Jewish household.

Not only has Lindbergh blamed the Jews for pushing America towards war with Germany, he has negotiated an 'understanding' with the Nazis promising peace between the two nations. Growing up in the 'ghetto' of Newark, Philip Roth recounts his childhood caught in the stranglehold of this counterfactual nightmare.

As America sinks into its own dark metamorphosis and Jewish families are torn apart, fear and uncertainty spread. Who really is President Lindbergh? And to what end has he hijacked America?**ONE OF THE GUARDIAN'S 100 BEST BOOKS OF THE 21ST CENTURY**
