Here is another novel about a dysfunctional family whose dysfunction includes alcoholism. The striking part of the novel is the severe dysfunction of the alcoholic’s daughter. I enjoyed the novel and generally felt compelled to continue reading as the main character unravels. I would recommend this book to those who like delving into a character’s psyche.

This is one of Roth's best books. I had read it many years ago and enjoyed it more the second time around!

I really respect Philip Roth, although for me, this wasn't my favorite book of his - it did complete my collection, however. The writing is classic Roth, but the characters were hard to relate to, and were not as engaging as others, say, "Letting Go," and "Portnoy's Complaint." I found Lucy to be hard to understand and hard to sympathize with, yet it was still undeniable Roth, and other details and characterizations more than made up for what didn't work for me.
