The Dying Animal by Philip Roth

 

The Dying Animal by Philip Roth

The final novel in the Kepesh trilogy – this novel finds the moderately famous academic past sixty and falling in love with a twenty year old Cuban Princess, and for once he is the weaker of the two in the relationship; he is plagued by jealousy; he is plagued by self-doubt and anxiety; he is plagued by all the infirmities of old age. It’s pretty brutal. Such is desire. Such is life.
