A very nice first edition/first printing in Fine condition, dust jacket has three minute, barely visible tears, otherwise fine. A beautiful and collectible copy of Roth's fifth novel.

A ferocious political satire in the great tradition, Our Gang is Philip Roth's brilliantly indignant response to the phenomenon of Richard M. Nixon. In the character of Trick E. Dixon, Roth shows us a man who outdoes the severest cynic, a peace-loving Quaker and believer in the sanctity of human life who doesn't have a problem with killing unarmed women and children in self-defense.
