I think a lot of Catholic households and Jewish households are not a lot different. I guess I can work with that. The book tacks back and forth between Alex the masturbator at 14 and Alex the sadly, madly lost sexual libertine at 33, a case of arrested development, one of many many Roth books that would seem to take a look at sex and mortality and cultural identity.

You corrupted a youth. If you are going to be your own person, what does being Jewish have to do with the picture?
I’ve lameento this thing, this book. Are you thinking of a shikse or something? E non ho potuto non provare partecipazione e tenerezza per Alex Portnoy, per le sue ossessioni e i suoi sensi di colpa. And round and round we go.
I laughed so hard hearing Alex reminisce of the time when he was a teen living at home. Appartieni al popolo che l’Onnipotente ha designato come eletto fra tutti. Regardless, I felt sorry for the pathetic schlep at one point. Feb 19, G. Non hai pensato neanche un po’ a tua madre ed a quanto male stava?

I just dig the shit out of this book. And his portrait of middle-aged Jewish husband-dom is as sensitive and moving as his depiction of that era’s almento anti-Semitism is disturbing.
