First thus, in the first of three jacket variants, referencing Letting Go instead of Portnoy's Complaint on the front panel. Jacket toned and lightly foxed. 1966 Hard Cover. We have more books available by this author!. 298 pp. Roth's debut, which won the National Book Award. Roth's award-winning first book instantly established its author's reputation as a writer of explosive wit, merciless insight, and a fierce compassion for even the most self-deluding of his characters. Goodbye, Columbus is the story of Neil Klugman and pretty, spirited Brenda Patimkin, he of poor Newark, she of suburban Short Hills, who meet one summer break and dive into an affair that is as much about social class and suspicion as it is about love. The novella is accompanied by five short stories that range in tone from the iconoclastic to the astonishingly tender and that illuminate the subterranean conflicts between parents and children and friends and neighbors in the American Jewish diaspora.
