From the Pulitzer Prize–winning writer of explosive wit, merciless insight, and a fierce compassion comes a novella that illuminates the subterranean conflicts between parents and children and friends and neighbors in the American Jewish diaspora.

Goodbye, Columbus is the story of Neil Klugman and pretty, spirited Brenda Patimkin. Neil comes from poor Newark, while Brenda is of suburban Short Hills. On one summer break, they meet 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.

Philip Roth’s award-winning first book instantly established its author’s acclaimed reputation.
