Portnoy's Complaint - Philip Roth i tried. i really did. but it was more than i could bear. thank God i didn't buy the book. philip roth, i'll give you another chance, someday. but i'll pick something else.


Persians, Greeks, now Jews. First person narrative, Portnoy's confessions to his therapist are funny and witty. And yes, he's obsessed with sex, but I won't let this interfere with me enjoying a good reading. :D


"Good Christ, a Jewish man with parents alive is a fifteen-year-old boy, and will remain a fifteen-year-old boy till they die!"

"The legend engraved on the face of the Jewish nickel– on the body of every Jewish child!– not IN GOD WE TRUST, but SOMEDAY YOU'LL BE A PARENT AND YOU'LL KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE."

Sometimes i can hear Seinfeld's voice while reading :)
