about this book

A fiction-within-a-fiction, a labyrinthine edifice of funny, mournful, and harrowing meditations on the fatal impasse between a man and a woman, My Life as a Man is Roth's most blistering novel. At its heart lies the marriage of Peter and Maureen Tarnopol, a gifted young writer and the woman who wants to be his muse, but who instead is his nemesis.

"[My Life as a Man is] a scalding, unique addition to the lasting literature about men and women."--Newsday
