Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-------------------------GOODBYE, COLUMBUS AND FIVE SHORT STORIES by Philip Roth. Goodbye, Columbus is the story of Neil Klugman from poor Newark and Brenda Patimkin from an upper-crust family in Short Hills and their relationship over a summer. Neil relates the story of his love for the beautiful Brenda, a love in which the two share little in common. He presents his hopes and dreams and his ultimate realizations about the state of the world and about himself. The novella is ultimately a beautiful, complex coming-of-age story. Goodbye, Columbus is one of the best books of the century. It is so realistic and easy to relate to. There are many great insights to be found here. The novella isn't a difficult read, but one should definitely be aware of the symbols (such as the title, the fruit, the lions, and the uncle at the wedding) to glean the most from it. As for the short stories, all of them, particularly "The Conversion of the Jews," are wonderful. They, as well as the opening novella, are masterpieces. This is the stated MLB First Edition from September 1966. Other than a back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris), both the mylar-covered DJ and the book are in very good condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.---and the pages are and binding are tight (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. Paypal is acceptable.
