The best of Philip Roth

Erica Wagner, literary editor of the Times (London) and author, most recently, of Seizure, named "the best of Philip Roth" for her newspaper.

One title to make the list, albeit a little lower than I would have ranked it:
The Counterlife (1987)

Zuckerman again; family life, impotence, dentistry ... vintage Roth.
Read Wagner's complete list.
