American Pastoral, by Philip Roth

American Pastoral, by Philip Roth

423 pages

"Roth's protagonist is Swede Levov, a legendary athlete at his Newark high school, who grows up in the booming postwar years to marry a former Miss New Jersey, inherit his father's glove factory, and move into a stone house in the idyllic hamlet of Old Rimrock. And then one day in 1968, Swede's beautiful American luck deserts him."

When I finished it, I kind of just sat back and said to myself, 'What was that?'.
