This evening book discussion features Indignation by Philip Roth.
Philip Roth's twenty-ninth book is a story of inexperience, intellectual resistance, sexual discovery, courage and oppressive love. it is a story told with all the inventive energy and wit Roth has at his command. It is 1951 in America, the second year of the Korean War. A studious, law-abiding, intense young man from Newark, Marcus Messner is beginning his sophomore year away from home on a pastoral, conservative campus in Ohio. Rebelling against his ancestral inheritance and desperate to leave his overbearing father, he has to find his way amid the customs of a different American world.
