"Roth is a living master" (Harold Bloom New York Review of Books)

"High, careful tragedy, nasty as life, and Roth a Dreiser who can write!" (Stanley Elkin)

"Compassion mingles with horror in a superb portrayal of a young woman's obsession with moral rectitude" ( Saturday Review)

Reseña del editor:

In this mesmerizing, funny, chilling novel. the setting is a small town in the 1940s Midwest, the subject the heart of a wounded and ferociously moralistic young woman.

When she was still a child, Lucy Nelson had her alcoholic failure of a father thrown in jail. Ever since then she has been trying to reform the men around her, even if that ultimately means destroying herself in the process. With his unerring portraits of Lucy and her hapless, childlike husband, Roy, Roth has created an uncompromising work of fictional realism, a vision of provincial American piety, yearning and discontent that is at once pitiless and compassionate.
