Letting Go by Philip Roth [1963 PAPERBACK]

  • $8.00


Nice vintage reading copy with wear to cover and tanning to pages.  Mild water stain to righthand corner towards the far end of the book.

Letting Go is Roth's first full-length novel, published just after Goodbye, Columbus, when he was twenty-nine. Set in 1950s Chicago, New York, and Iowa city, Letting Go presents as brilliant a fictional portrait as we have of a mid-century America defined by social and ethical constraints and by moral compulsions conspicuously different from those of today.
