It requires little rhetoric. Just state it plainly -Roth, Exit Ghost

It requires little rhetoric. Just state it plainly -Roth, Exit Ghost. Exit Ghost is the last of the Nathan Zuckerman series of ten books (yay, done!), Zuck at 71, as was Roth at the time. No one really knows who Roth is, of course; he’s the literary version of Exit, ghost -in Hamlet (and Macbeth, Julius Caesar, and so on). Reading/writing people, we are finished, we are ghosts witnessing the end of a literary era"-Lonoff, in The Ghost Writer. The end is so immense, it is its own poetry. It requires little rhetoric.

I wish everyone would let me be about that book. Then she looked at the pages in her hand and, laughing brightly, she said, "This is a brilliant letter to the Times. It's so brilliant they never printed it.

I wish everyone would let me be about that book.

This is a sequel to Roth's Ghost Writer. Roth's alter-ego Zuckerman returns to NYC for a medical procedure. The story includes some of Roth's pet tropes; the shadow character who "threatens" Zuckerman, in this case a younger writer; the woman he yearns for but can't possess. He is reunited with Amy Bellette. As Zuckerman deals with his incontinence, his angry outbursts, his inappropriate yearnings for a married woman too young to perhaps take him seriously, you come to realize you are reading the revelations of an unreliable narrator with memory loss and perhaps dementia issues. This eminently readable novel about the travails of aging engages, with moments of shock and humor, and is, of course, a must-read for those Roth fans pulled along in Zuckerman's wake.

The latest (last?) installment in Philip Roth's Zuckerman series of books finds Roth's writer alter-ego Nathan Zuckerman, writing in the first person, taking a trip to New York for a medical procedure after spending many years in nearly complete isolation in the Berkshires, working on his writing. Zuckerman's mind and body have been breaking down because of the aging process, and Zuckerman had already chosen (and arranged for himself) a lifestyle of withdrawal and seclusion, to best be able to devote his remaining physical and mental capacities to his craft of writing. The trip to New York, however, exposes him to an old friend in need, new acquaintances including an enchantress, and conflicts that reinvigorate him, causing Zuckerman to consider getting back into the fray of human relations.

As is always the case in Roth's writing, "Exit Ghost" works on multiple levels, and is concerned with much more than just the plotline. "Exit Ghost" is first and foremost a treatise on aging and the decisions and sacrifices that must be made during the long downward slide leading ultimately to the grave. Roth describes in vivid detail Zuckerman's physical ailments and the diminishment of his mind's ability to remember recent events. Roth shows how these not only impact Zuckerman's daily life, but also (and more importantly) the major choices Zuckerman must make in how to live his life. Should the aging process be fought at every step with all mental, physical and medical means available, or should one be more accepting towards the inevitable? Just what does it mean to live and to make the most of the finite time we each have left on this planet? How is one's work and one's ultimate legacy to be balanced against the need or urge to engage in human relations and resolve the conflicts that arise? In "Exit Ghost" Roth asks, analyzes and attempts to answer these questions.

As is the case with Roth's Zuckerman books, some people will read "Exit Ghost" with a focus on trying to determine how many of the conditions and events Zuckerman describes actually apply to Roth. While this may amuse and intrigue some, it is not at all an important issue. Had "Exit Ghost" been written by a 40 year-old Roth, it would still stand on its own as a great short novel. But if Roth's mind really is starting to degenerate to the point that, as Zuckerman states, makes it harder and harder to write a novel, I hope it holds out for as long as possible. I thoroughly enjoyed this Roth book and hope to read more new Roth books in the future.

This is only my second Roth novel and my first of his Zuckerman series. Roth does not protect himself. He puts his guts on the page. I like that about him. Zuckerman has become impotent and incontinent and has been Thoreauing it in an isolated cabin when circumstances lead him back to New York City where he runs into his deceased writing mentor's lover, now 70 something and with a brain tumor that disfigures her ancient face. She's confused and rambling around in the past. He also meets a young couple who have advertised in the `New York Times Review of Books'. The wife, Jamie, catches his mind and his useless lust. He and the couple arrange to trade their homes for a year which gives Zuckerman an excuse to spend more time with Jamie. She introduces him to an obnoxious, Zuckerman wannabe, her ex-boyfriend. This near stalker wants to write an inflammatory biography of Zuckerman's mentor. He and Zuckerman meet and scream abuse at one another. I'm not sure how he did it but Roth made me care very much for these less than attractive characters. I felt a well of compassion open for them.

It's probably best to read the Zuckerman books in order but "Ghost" holds up on its on as well.
