For Rabbit, With Love and Squalor
An American ReadUnknown - 2000
Those who enjoy Roiphe's writings (she has a column in The New York Observer and has written novels and an autobiography) will appreciate this volume of her reminiscences and musings on various well-known classics whose male characters held great meaning for her at certain times of her life, in part as the basis of comparison to the men in her life. Writing in an autobiographical mode, she shares the details of her life story as she remembers Catcher in the Rye, Tender is the Night, For Whom the Bell Tolls, the works of John Updike and Philip Roth, and Maurice Sendak.
