Henry Roth's final novel, An American Type, is nothing short of a miracle, a lyrical work of immense poignancy from a writer whose biographical story has no parallel in American literature. Roth, best known for his towering immigrant novel Call It Sleep, emerged from a literary hibernation of 60 years in 1994 with Mercy of a Rude Stream, a fictional quartet that would be hailed by as "a landmark of the American literary century." In contrast to Roth's previous novels, An American Type is a both a love story and a lamentation, the final fruit of nearly 2,000 unpublished pages that Roth composed in the last years of his life.

In his relentless search to become a writer, a husband and an Books, Fiction~~General, American-Type~~Henry-Roth, , , , , , , , , , Blackstone Audio, Inc.
