Patrimony: a True Story - 1st Edition/1st Printing
A most handsome First Edition/First Printing in Fine condition in alike dustjacket. This one SIGNED by author Philip Roth directly on the title page;
Patrimony, a true story, touches the emotions as strongly as anything Philip Roth has ever written. Roth watches as his eighty-six-year-old father -famous for his vigor, charm, and his repertoire of Newark recollections- battles the brain tumor that will kill him. The son, full of love, anxiety, and dread, accompanies his father through each fearful stage of his final ordeal, and, as he does so, discloses the survivalist tenacity that has distinguished his father's long, stubborn engagement with life.
