The Humbling by Philip Roth (Hardcover)


RETAIL PRICE $22.00 OUR PRICE $17.99 - Everything is over for Simon Axler, the protagonist of Philip Rothís startling new book. One of the leading American stage actors of his generation, now in his sixties, he has lost his magic, his talent, and his assurance. His Falstaff and Peer Gynt and Vanya, all his great roles, "are melted into air, into thin air." When he goes onstage he feels like a lunatic and looks like an idiot. His confidence in his powers has drained away; he imagines people laughing at him; he can no longer pretend to be someone else. "Something fundamental has vanished." His wife has gone, his audience has left him, his agent canít persuade him to make a comeback.
