American Jewish novelist, Nathan Zuckerman Zuckerman has at least vague resemblances to what readers might imagine as the character of Roth Throughout the book, Roth plays on these resemblances, teasing the reader about the extent to which the writer and his fictional protagonist may be the same The relationship between author and character is only one of the many studied ambiguities and themes in this book.The story is told in the third person, perhaps to separate Roth from Zuckerman It is set primarily in 1973, shortly after In the previous book in the Zuckerman Bound series, entitled Zuckerman Unbound, we see that the novelist Zuckerman, castigated particularly by Jews for his popular and funny novel Carnovsky, about a lecherous young Jewish man such as Roth s Portnoy s Complaint Carnovsky s Newark Jewish community and his family are horrified that they see his family in this novel This is a deliberate ploy on Roth s part, to say that his characters have nothing and everything to do with his What is perhaps so striking about this book is that Philip Roth depicts an aging writer who, because of undiagnosed physical pain, has stopped writing filling his world with doubt and despair Zuckerman s pain is very much an investigation of Roth s own biographical highlights Roth too recovered from surgery, stopped finding writing worthwhile, and was attacked over and over again for his most infamous novel Portnoy s Complaint i.e Carnovsky So disillusioned with writing is Zuckerman that h What is perhaps so striking about this book is that Philip Roth depicts an

inform on writing For Zuck, being a doctor means working with people, not alone with doubt.Some of the wildest passages are when Zuckerman poses as a pornographer he has named after his worst literary

Zuckerman has bottled up his anger at his moralist critics and mental anguish at the death of his parents to the extent that he actually suffers physically and is unable to write This creative castration of Zuckerman serves to drive the narrative as much as this type of novel has a driven narrative Mostly, it deals with conversations with friends and doctors, physical relationships with female caregivers, and large doses of philosophical tangents on pain, pleasure, defense of creativity, consciousnes It was arguably a mistake to read The Anatomy Lesson without first reading the previous two books in the Zuckerman series, but the third installment works fine on its own, especially if the reader has a working knowledge of Philip Roth s own history One can easily mentally replace Carnovsky, the book for which author Nathan Zuckerman became famous, with Roth s own Portnoy s Complaint, and all becomes clear I read Portnoy s Complaint many, many years ago, but it s not a
