KOY, that fit is really cool, and your dad seems awesome haha.  Mine would be a total asshole if he saw me ever taking pics of myself

indeed little doll would be closer. i quite like where you were headed though. thanks for the kind words.

very impressive pulling out aishet chayil, not exactly a hebrew phrase that made its way into english dialect. and that is just what she is, a beautiful aishet chayil. i outkicked my coverage by miles.

Given the fact that Annie Hall has been enough of a self-fulfilling prophecy for me, well, I'm looking twice before I step into nebbish Jew-fiction territory again. (I'll probably read it anyway.)

If you're going to read Roth, I'd suggest the following, in order.

 

The Ghost Writer
Zuckerman Unbound
The Anatomy Lesson
The Prague Orgy
The Counterlife
American Pastoral
I Married a Communist
The Human Stain
Exit Ghost
 

Though if you really want to set the mood, start with Seize the Day (Bellow) and then segue into Goodbye Columbus. The Conversion of the Jews in particular is one of my favourite short stories.

 

It it showing that I almost majored in Jewish Studies?

don't read roth. i guess if you have to, american pastoral is the best. the human stain fucking sucks.
post #93445 of 117666
I thought The Plot Against America was pretty cool.

Do it, as much flak as Roth gets, next to Lolita this is one of the only books that has made me belly laugh out loud while reading it.
