I got a book token for Christmas, a feel it my duty to spend it on one of his books. which is best?
but I saw an adaptation of The Human Stain (?) - whichever one with Ben Kingsley - and it was very good, and made me wish I had read the book first. The Zuckerman stuff looks a bit tedious.
i would start with later work, so maybe portnoy's isn't a great idea
And I'm a big fan of the Human Stain, Operation Shylock and American Pastoral too.
'I Married a Communist' is pretty good.
'The Human Stain' is phenomenal, though a bit heavy.
'The Plot Against America' is an easier read but still darn good.
