Author(s): Philip Roth
'Swede' Levov is living the American dream. He glides through life cocooned by his devoted family, lucrative business, sporting prowess and good looks. He is the embodiment of thriving, post-war America, land of liberty and hope. Until one sunny day in 1968, when Swede's daughter, Merry, commits an outlandishly savage act of political terrorism and the Levov family is plunged into mayhem. This is the Pulitzer-prize winning novel that confirmed Philip Roth as one of the greatest American writers of the twentieth century and that still profoundly resonates today.
