Come discuss Philip Roth’s meditation on aging and death. His novel’s protagonist is a 70-something who spends his last days lamenting his lost prowess and refusing to apologize for a lifetime of bad behavior. Some will see him as Portnoy all grown up, a synthesis of the womanizing, sex- and death-obsessed characters that have been Roth’s fictional trademarks. As a reminder, this is a book discussion group; the author will not be present.
