Title

Nemesis by Philip Roth

Dr. James Moore, Adjunct Professor of Writing

Description

“I know, I know. Who wants to read a gripping novel about the 1944 polio epidemic that ravaged New Jersey now during the Coronavirus pandemic? But many will find a strange, unexpected comfort in the story as the narrator grapples with many of the same questions related to guilt, fear, solidarity, and the mystery of the human response to suffering that we are contending with presently.”
