A short, thoughtful novella. Very laid-back writing, with musings on the past and the great emptiness of the future. The main character is quite imperfect, but you start to feel it could've been you just as easily. And then he's gone. Very depressing really, despite the sometimes sardonic writing of Roth. He's starting to become one of my favorites, this versatile writer.
