One of his six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
PORTNOY’S COMPLAINT by Philip RothRead about the other books on the list.
Roth is my favourite writer. We are both Jewish New Jersey boys and no other writer has spoken to me quite as well about that background. This is basically a coming-of-age story and caused a storm when it was published. It’s wild, erotic, hysterical and life-affirming.
Portnoy's Complaint is among Jeff Somers's five worst mothers in literary history, Jay Rayner's six best books, Oren Smilansky's very funny books, David Denby's six favorite books, and Matthew Pearl's top ten books inspired by Edgar Allan Poe.
