American Pastoral – Philip Roth

Opis towaru

Seymour „Swede” Levov – a legendary high school athlete, a devoted family man, a hard worker, the prosperous inheritor of his father’s Newark glove factory – comes of age in thriving, triumphant postwar America. But everything he loves is lost when the country begins to run amok in the turbulent 1960s. Not even the most private, well-intentioned citizens, it seems, gets to sidestep the sweep of history. „American Pastoral” is the story of a fortunate American’s rise and fall – of a strong, confident master of social equilibrium overwhelmed by the forces of social disorder. For the Swede is not allowed to stay forever blissful inside the beloved hundred-and-seventy-year-old stone farmhouse, in rural Old Rimrock, where he lives with his pretty wife – the college sweetheart who was Miss New Jersey of 1949 – and the lively, precocious daughter who is the apple of his eye. The apple of his eye, that is, until she grows up to be a revolutionary terrorist bent on destroying her father’s paradise. „American Pastoral” presents a vivid portrait of how the innocence of Swede Levov is swept away by the times – of how everything industriously created by his family in America over three generations is left in a shambles by the explosion of a bomb in his own bucolic backyard.

American Pastoral – Philip Roth

Opis towaru

Now a major motion picture based on Philip Roth’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece American Pastoral, starring Ewan McGregor and Jennifer Connelly

‘Swede’ Levov is living the American dream. He glides through life sustained by his devoted family, his demanding yet highly rewarding (and lucrative) business, his sporting prowess, his good looks. He is the embodiment of thriving, post-war America, land of liberty and hope.

Until the sunny day in 1968, when the Swede’s bountiful American luck deserts him.

The tragedy springs from devastatingly close to home. His adored daughter, Merry, has become a stranger to him, a fanatical teenager capable of an outlandishly savage act of political terrorism that plunges the Levov family into the political mayhem of sixties America, and drags them into the underbelly of a seemingly ascendant society.

Rendered powerless by the shocking turn of events, the Swede can only watch as his pastoral idyll is methodically torn apart.
