Along with Saul Bellow
, Philip Roth's Portnoy's Complaint
defined Jewish American literature in the 1960s. Roth's masterpiece takes place on the couch of a psychoanalyst, an appropriate jumping-off place for an insanely comical novel about the Jewish American experience. Roth has written several great books--Goodbye, Columbus
and When She Was Good
among them, but it is perhaps Portnoy's Complaint
for which he is best known.
