Revue de presse

"A true story, told with all the powerful authority and cunning narrative order of a major writer" (Sunday Times)

"His best work since The Counterlife" (Observer)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Patrimony, a true story, touches the emotions as strongly a anything Philip Roth has ever written. Philip Roth watches as his eighty-six-year-old father - famous for his vigour, his charm, and his repertoire of Newark recollection - battles with the brain tumour that will kill him. The son, full of love, anxiety and dread, accompanies his father through each fearful stage of his final ordeal, and, as he does so, discloses the survivalist tenacity that has distinguished his father's long, stubborn engagement with life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A devoted son tells of the last year of his father's life 11 octobre 2004
Par Shalom Freedman - Publié sur Amazon.com
In this work we see a kinder and more humane Philip Roth than we see in his fictions. His devotion to his father through the father's illness and loss of his own powers is moving. In the course of it Roth himself suffers a near fatal heart attack. With Roth there is always a special intensity and often beauty in the writing. This is one of his best books. It portrays a painful and difficult human reality that most come to know at one time or another, with dedication and real art.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is an exceptionally fine book. 13 juillet 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Patrimony is a non-fiction account of the last years of Philip Roth's father, Herman, covering as well the family history which was so important to Herman. Not only is Roth a fine stylist, but the sensitivity of this account transcends even the exceptional style. By turns tragic, sardonic, humerous and moving, this book is a window into the values of late twentieth-century America, both good and bad

4.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a difficult book with an extraordinary writing 23 mai 2006
Par Simon Cleveland - Publié sur Amazon.com
There is something sad, something utterly painful about book tributes to fathers. When reading Wiesel's "Night", Franzen's "My Father's Brain" or Roth's "Patrimony", one comes to grips with a difficult reality, of the unnatural heart ache and grief that accompany aging and what they do in the mean time to the father-son relationship.

"Patrimony" offers a glimpse of this aging, of the deterioration of the body. As one reads, one physically partakes into the burden of loosing a loved one, of facing the difficult decisions of what comes next, of recalling memories, of learning to struggle, of the heartbreaking doctor appointments...Philip Roth never holds back. He doesn't protect from the sorrow, or grief. He tells his life's story with honesty and shameless openness that requires not only brilliant clarity, but also the strength of love, love of the kind passed down from a good father to a worthy son.

This is a difficult book with an extraordinary writing and should be considered by anyone who has, is or will ever care for an aging parent.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Touching story that will help you better understand the aging process 30 mars 2006
Par Blaine Greenfield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Heard the CD version of PATRIMONY: A TRUE STORY

by Philip Roth, the touching story of how his 86-year-old

father battles with the brain tumor that eventually kills him.

If you've ever been in the situation where you have had a parent

or grandparent get old right before your eyes, then this

is a book for you . . . it will help you deal with the situation

better and, also, to understand the aging process.

I really felt I got to know Herman Roth and enjoyed in

sharing his reminisces about growing up in Newark, as

well as about life.

In addition, I could relate to the difficulties that Philip Roth

was going through in attempting to care for his

father--especially when he, too, had to deal with a serious

illness during the process.

The narration by George Guidall was excellent . . . his interpretation

of the elder Roth's voice was truly amazing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful memoir intertwined with feelings 1 janvier 2014
Par Alter Wiener - Publié sur Amazon.com
The definition of patrimony is an estate inherited from one's father. Philip Milton Roth, in his book PATRIMONY is, in my view, not what he inherited but rather what he bestowed upon his parents, Bess and Herman Roth, first generation Americans, children of Jewish immigrants from Poland. The college educated Roth never looked down at his father, who had to quit school for good at the age of twelve to help support his parents and all their children. He cared for his father while aging and inflicted with many severe health issues. His words and deeds for his father inflicted with a brain tumor evoke inspiration. Despite the tendency of shedding the burden of Jewish traditions and proscriptions, Roth dutifully abided by the Fifth Commandment of the Bible `Honor your Father and Mother.' He knew how to prioritize principles in a right way; he was emotionally entwined with his father. Any child who respects and cares for his or her parents, especially aging parents merits my admiration; so does Roth, he deemed it to be a moral imperative to help any old person, especially a father. This usual phenomenon in my generation and in Roth's generation is not as common today's generation as reflected in "Generation Me" by Jean M. Twenge. An extreme case we read in "Patrimony": a cab driver told Roth:" I didn't go to my father's funeral (page 157)" This must have been an emotional agony to the rest of the family and to his father's friends.

Roth is a literary power, a prolific and successful novelist; he is one of the most awarded U.S. writers of his generation. He is a possessor of a well stocked-mind and a searing wit. Much of Roth's fiction revolves around semi-autobiographical themes. Patrimony is an autobiographical true story, a personal memoir. As a boy who was brought up in a similar cultural environment as the author, I am fully identifying with values that the author describes in this non-fiction book. Since English is not my mother-tongue, I had difficulties to understand Philip's controversial "Portnoy's Complaint" which is full of coarse and colloquial language. In PATRIMONY, Roth's conversation with a New York cab driver is quite vulgar, but it was easier for me to grasp. Apparently I have to get familiar with the vernacular of some New Yorkers. Roth's story telling talents are intertwined with a sense of humor even when facing travails as his beloved father's death. His humor doesn't diminish one iota of his compassionate soul; the book is not maudlin; it is basically a tribute paid by a devoted and compassionate son to a devoted but stubborn and difficult father; at times a nasty man. Yet he is Roth's father and Roth loves him. Despite simplicity of style I was just wondering why Roth sounds to be not interested in books about the Holocaust (page 217).The last sentence in this book reads" you must not forget anything." As a Holocaust survivor who has shared his life story with many hundreds of thousands listeners and readers of his autobiography, I can attest the importance of perpetuating the Holocaust legacy. Otherwise Roth sounds to me to be a proud American, as well as a Jew imbued with a great talent. PATRIMONY is a wonderful memoir intertwined with feelings and ratiocination; it deserves five stars.
