My Father, My Portnoy

 

continued

"Philip Roth at age 80 doesn't claim to have any children," wrote Kathie Wilder. "Thus, it's doubtful 'My Father, My Portnoy' may be a valid memoir. ... Smiled at the author's name, IRA Roth. Apropos during tax season."

Olivia Popp also noted the play on Philip Roth's novel Portnoy's Complaint. "While not the most traditional of plots at the time, it did push Philip Roth to fame on its coarse dialog, harsh irony, and controversial subjects. I'll be sure to buy Ira's book in the parallel universe that sells it."

Linda Etter also wondered about Roth fils's book: "What is his complaint?" she asked.

Our favorite note, though, came from Judi Taylor: "I was just thinking--if I ever play Trivial Pursuit I want you on my team Czar! You seem to have an endless knowledge of everything!" We blush.

Our winner was Chad Rupley. He's taking his gift certificate to Bigalora.
