National Book Award Winner Philip Roth's brilliant career was launched when the unknown twenty-five-year-old writer won the Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship for a collection that was to be called Goodbye, Columbus, and which, in turn, captured the 1960 National Book Award. In the famous title story, perhaps the best college love story ever written, Radcliffe-bound Brenda Patimkin initiates Neil Klugman of Newark into a new and unsettling society of sex, leisure, and loss. Over the years, most of the other stories have become classics as well.

This is a wonderfully funny and honest book to start with if you have never read anything by Philip Roth. The title is the name of the novella which is bound together with a few short stories. You will pick it up and read it in one or two sittings.

Roth's famous first book is brilliant. It is a beautiful story, funny painful and filled with truth. It's all handled with intelligence and compassion.
