About This Item

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1998. First edition of this classic work. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Philip Roth on the title page. From the library of fellow novelist John Barth, with his signature to the half-title page. Barth won the National Book Award in fiction for his novel Chimera. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Milton Glaser. A remarkable work—remarkable in its stringent observation of American life...remarkable in its wisdom. Mr. Roth has the frantic politics of this frantic time—the McCarthy era—in exact pitch" (Arthur Schlesinger, The New York Observer).

Synopsis

I Married a Communist is a Philip Roth novel concerning the rise and fall of Ira Ringold, known as "Iron Rinn. " The story is narrated by Nathan Zuckerman, and is one of a trio of Zuckerman novels Roth wrote in the 1990s depicting the postwar history of Newark, New Jersey and its residents. Ira and his brother Murray serve as two immense influences on the school-age Zuckerman, and the story is told as a contemporary reminiscence between Murray and Nathan on Ira's life.
