about this book

Winner of the National Book Award

Sabbath's Theater is a comic creation of epic proportions, and Mickey Sabbath is its gargantuan hero. Once a scandalously inventive puppeteer, Sabbath at sixty-four is still defiantly antagonistic and exceedingly libidinous. After the death of his long-time mistress, Sabbath embarks on a turbulent journey into his past.

"This splendidly wicked book...is among the most remarkable novels in recent years.... The energy of the book is amazing.... Roth is hilariously serious about life and death."--New York Review of Books
