REVIEWED BY FRANCINE PROSE

NOVEL

Roth's 22nd novel brings his hero Nathan Zuckerman back to New York. For the reader, it's reason to celebrate, but Nathan is hardly in a party mood. Tired of his rural life and in frail health, Zuckerman wanders the city and meets three people who will change his life. As always, Roth writes like an angel, and as Zuckerman clings to the world, Roth reminds us that the closest any of us may get to immortality is the perfectly crafted sentence.
