BEHIND THE BOOK

 
A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR

To tell the story of Lindbergh’s presidency from the point of view of my own family was a spontaneous choice. To alter the historical reality by making Lindbergh America’s 33rd president while keeping everything else as close to factual truth as I could—that was the job as I saw it. . . . It also gave me an opportunity to bring my parents back from the grave and restore them to what they were at the height of their powers in their late 30’s . . . and then to go ahead to imagine how they might have conducted themselves under the enormous pressure of a Jewish crisis such as they never really had to encounter as native-born New Jerseyans, living all their lives, luckily enough, without an Aryan white supremacist in the White House. I’ve tried to portray them here as faithfully as I could—as though I were, in fact, writing nonfiction.

—Philip Roth, The New York Times,
September 19, 2004
