Goodbye, Columbus by Roth, Philip
Goodbye, Columbus: And Five Short Stories
by Roth, Philip
It is 1998, the year in which America is whipped into a frenzy of prurience by the impeachment of a president, & in a small New England town, an aging classics professor, Coleman Silk, is forced to retire when his colleagues decree that he is a racist. The charge is a lie, but the real truth about Silk would have astonished even his most virulent accuser. Coleman Silk has a secret, one which has been kept for fifty years from his wife, his four children, his colleagues, & his friends, including the writer Nathan Zuckerman. It is Zuckerman who stumbles upon Silk's secret & sets out to reconstruct the unknown biography of this eminent, upright man, esteemed as an educator for nearly all his life, & to understand how this ingeniously contrived life came unraveled. And to understand also how Silk's astonishing private history is, in the words of The Wall Street Journal, "magnificently" interwoven with "the larger public history of modern America."
Published 1994 by Vintage, Paperback, 320 Pages, ISBN: 9780679748267, ISBN-10: 0679748261, List Price $16.00.
