by Roth, Philip

Condition: Near Fine/Good


New York: Random House, 1971. Hardcover. Near Fine/Good. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. Roth's first book following "Portnoy's Complaint" is a scathing send-up of Richard Nixon and company, here named Trick E. Dixon. Book is near fine as is jacket except for a taped tear top front.


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. A master politician with an honest sneer, he finds himself battling the Boy Scouts, declaring war on Pro-Pornography Denmark, all the time trusting in the basic indifference of the voting public.From the Trade Paperback edition.
