Podrobný popis:

In American Pastoral, Philip Roth gives us a novel of unqualified greatness that is an elegy for all the twentieth century's promises of prosperity, civic order, and domestic bliss. Roth's protagonist is Seymour 'Swede' Levov - a legendary high school athlete, a devoted family man, a hard worker, the prosperous inheritor of his father's Newark glove factory - comes of age in thriving, triumphant post-war America. And then one day in 1968, Swede's beautiful American luck deserts him. For Swede's adored daughter, Merry, has grown from a loving, quick-witted girl into a sullen, fanatical teenager - a teenager capable of an outlandishly savage act of political terrorism. And overnight Swede is wrenched out of the longed-for American pastoral and into the indigenous American berserk. Compulsively readable, propelled by sorrow, rage, and a deep compassion for its characters, this is Roth's masterpiece. In 1997 Philip Roth won the Pulitzer Prize for American Pastoral. In 1998 he received the National Medal of Arts at the White House, and in 2002 the highest award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Gold Medal in Fiction, previously awarded to John Dos Passos, William Faulkner and Saul Bellow, among others. He has twice won the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. He has won the PEN/Faulkner Award three times. In 2005 The Plot Against America received the Society of American Historians’ Prize for ‘the outstanding historical novel on an American theme for 2003–2004’. Recently Roth received PEN’s two most prestigious prizes: in 2006 the PEN/Nabokov Award ‘for a body of work . . . of enduring originality and consummate craftsmanship’ and in 2007 the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for Achievement in American Fiction, given to a writer whose ‘scale of achievement over a sustained career . . . places him or her in the highest rank of American literature’. In 2011 Roth won the International Man Booker Prize. Roth is the only living American writer to have his work published in a comprehensive, definitive edition by the Library of America. Readers who have followed Philip Roth's hero and alter-ego Nathan Zuckerman through five previous novels will be happy to see him again in American Pastoral, a novel that finds Nathan attending a high school reunion in Newark, New Jersey. But enjoy him while you can. Nathan disappears on page 89 and the story turns toward the particulars of Seymour Levov—the Swede, to his friends—a classmate of Zuckerman's whose life, it turns out, is nothing like what Nathan had imagined for him. More precisely, American Pastoral follows the fortunes of young Merry Levov, Swede's only child. At the age of 16, Merry gets involved with the Weathermen and blows up a post office, accidentally killing a man. She goes on the run and her life becomes one of violence, destitution, and irrationality. The central question in American Pastoral is, how could this fruit fall so terribly far from the tree? How could a decent
