Man Booker International Prize!

BIG NEWS in the literary world: Philip Roth has won the Man Booker International prize.  He’s the fourth person to do so, joining Chinua Achebe (read Things Fall Apart if you haven’t yet), Alice Munro (one of my favorites), and Ismail Kadare (I read his Chronicle in Stone last summer–really good).  One of my all-time favorite laugh-out-loud books is Portnoy’s Complaint by Roth.  I have never read American Pastoral (I know, hard to believe)–I’ve had it in my “to be read” pile for years.  Perhaps this summer I will get around to it…What is your favorite Roth novel?
