Now in his mid-thirties, Nathan Zuckerman, a would-be recluse despite his newfound fame as a bestselling author, ventures onto the streets of Manhattan in the final year of the turbulent sixties. Not only is he assumed by his fans to be his own fictional satyr, Gilbert Carnovsky, but he also finds himself the target of admonishers, advisers, and literary critics. The recent murders of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr., lead an unsettled Zuckerman to wonder if 'target' may be more than a figure of speech. In Zuckerman Unbound - the second volume of the trilogy and epilogue Zuckerman Bound - the notorious novelist retreats from his oldest friends, breaks his marriage to a virtuous woman, and damages, perhaps irreparably, his affectionate connection to his younger brother...and all because of his great good fortune.

Philip Roth’s ZUCKERMAN UNBOUND is the second Zuckerman novel, published in 1981, that followed the novel THE GHOST WRITER. There are quite a few parallels between Roth and Zuckerman. The novel opens with Zuckerman publishing a literary sensation called CARNOVSKY, which was a coming-of-age novel full of sex and Jewishness, similar to Roth’s PORTNOY’S COMPLAINT, a novel that was hinted at in THE GHOST WRITER and the cause of tension between Zuckerman and his father, who felt the work gave ammunition to anti-Semitics who would see Jewish stereotypes in the work. In UNBOUND we see Zuckerman’s uncomfortable run-ins with fans that see too much in his novel, including one Alvin Pepler who seems directly based on Herb Stempel from the 1950s quiz show scandals. 1969 New York City is the backdrop for this fascinating glimpse of an author running from his creation without a place to stop.

You can’t go wrong with Philip Roth. His writing is always authentic and engaging, if a little preoccupied with sex. In Zuckerman Unbound, he has some fun with the relationship of author Zuckerman to his fictional protagonist, Carnovsky, mirroring Roth’s relationship to his own protagonists. Other reviewers have commented on this, including fictional ones in the book.

Not to be overlooked is Roth’s handy guide for aspiring writers. If you’re planning to be a writer, you might want to study Zuckerman and work habits. He has read fifty yards of books, and he tells us his favorites. One is Thomas Wolfe, obviously relevant to the censure over Carnovsky.

Hints about Zuckerman’s output are sprinkled throughout the trilogy. He writes for six hours a day, producing three or four pages. This is in the morning, when his energy is fresh. He prefers sex at “her place,” because it’s easier to disengage and get back to his desk. After writing, he takes a long walk and then reads for another three hours.

I recommend all three books but, if you read only one, Zuckerman Unbound (the second one) is best. It starts with Carnovsky, and it has a proper dramatic ending. The Ghost Writer is more of a prologue. If you tire of the Jewish guilt theme, try American Pastoral instead. As the title suggests, it is more mainstream, with Zuckerman narrating someone else’s life.

Very well written. Too solipsistic for my taste. He focuses on how the world perceives him without taking sufficient responsibility for what the role that he plays in he response he gets and the outcomes in his life. Again, good writing but not my favorite book of Roth's. Probably depends on your phase of life, persepective...but that is what makes it interesting, huh?

ZUCHERMAN UNBOUND portrays the burden of the novelist whose response to every experience is to refashion and exploit it for the purpose of fashioning stories. As a result the novelist's ability to interrelate with others becomes restrained and distorted.
Rarely does the reader in American literature discover such a pessimistic vision of the consequences of forging a way of life that is grounded in imagining fiction.
An excellent read.

If you need to read what I think of this novel before buying it, you're in trouble. I'm not even qualified to give a review on this book. Buy it. Read it. You'll be a better person for having done so.

Tired of Philip Roth. Read a lot of his books. "Portnoy's Complaint" broke new ground in its day. This one is "Ho-Hum".

fun
Updike or Roth. Who you gonna choose? Loved the deathbed chat with father and the vitriol from the brother. Can't wait to finish the trilogy
