Goodbye, Columbus

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Una novela breve y cinco relatos sobre la vida de los judíos en Estados Unidos: el primer libro publicado por Philip Roth.

Goodbye, Columbus es la historia de Neil Klugman y la hermosa y espiritual Brenda Patimkin. Él es del Newark pobre, ella es del suburbio high class de Short Hills. Su encuentro en unas vacaciones de verano y su affaire posterior nos hablan de las clases sociales, la sospecha y el amor.

Acompañan a esta novela breve cinco relatos que iluminan los conflictos internos entre padres e hijos, amigos y vecinos, en la diáspora de los judíos americanos.

«A diferencia de quienes llegamos a este mundo ciegos y desnudos y llorando, el señor Roth ha nacido ya con uñas, con pelo, con dientes, y hablando a la perfección. Posee talento, posee ingenio, está lleno de fuerza y se desempeña como un virtuoso.»
Saul Bellow

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 04, 1999 – Following the recent release of Roth's vitriolic novel, I Married a Communist (also produced unabridged from Dove, with Ron Silver reading), it's refreshing to hear his most playful early material revisited. The title novel and accompanying stories are read by a list of top-notch performers. The title story, the coming-of-age tale of Newark's Neil Klugman, is read by John Rubinstein. Set in 1950s America, the idealistic college dropout Klugman spends a summer wooing Brenda Patimkin, an affluent Radcliffe girl from the nearby suburb of Short Hills. Their gentle courtship is disrupted by issues of class, religion and sex. The other stories, which include "The Conversion of the Jews" and "You Can't Tell a Man by the Song He Sings," are read by Rubinstein, Jerry Zaks, Harlan Ellison, Elliott Gould and Theodore Bikel. All do a good job of conveying Roth's sardonic humor, which--even in this younger work--has a world-weary, sorrowful weightiness. But the true gift demonstrated here is Roth's amazing deadpan wit, a quality exploited to dramatic ends when read aloud by the adroit veterans employed.
