TBR: Exit Ghost (and The Ghost Writer)

If you keep up with new books, you’re probably noticing a wave of critical attention being given to Philip Roth’s latest novel, Exit Ghost. I’m just going to point you to one review, by James Wood in this week’s New Yorker. But I will suggest that you spend additional reading time reading (or re-reading, as the case may be), Roth’s The Ghost Writer, which launched the Zuckerman series and, based on the reviews of the new work that I’ve seen thus far, is very much connected with Exit Ghost in a way that I’m not sure the other Zuckerman novels may be. (I admit I haven’t read them all [yet!].)
