Operation Shylock by Philip Roth

Book Description

Winner of the PEN/Faulkner AwardIn Operation Shylock, Philip Roth meets a man who may or may not be Philip Roth. Because someone with that name has been touring Israel, promoting a bizarre reverse exodus of the Jews. Roth is intent on stopping him, even if that means impersonating his own impersonator. With suspense, philosophical speculation, and a cast of characters that includes Israeli intelligence agents, Palestinian exiles, and an enticing charter member of an organization called Anti-Semites Anonymous, Operation Shylock barrels across the frontier between fact and fiction, history and nightmare.

American Pastoral by Philip Roth American Pastoral, Paperback (November 2016)

'Swede' Levov is living the American dream. He glides through life sustained by his family, his demanding yet highly rewarding (and lucrative) business, his sporting prowess, his good looks. He is the embodiment of thriving, post-war America, land of liberty and hope. Until the day in 1968, when the Swede's bountiful American luck deserts him.

Mendelssohn is on the Roof by Philip Roth Mendelssohn is on the Roof, Paperback (June 2011)

SS Officer Juliyus Schlesinger is ordered to remove the statue of the Jewish composer Mendelssohn from the roof of the Prague Academy of Music before an official concert. Unsure which of the statues is Mendelssohn, he tells his men to remove the one with the biggest nose. Unfortunately, this is the statue of Wagner.
