Inhaltsangabe

"With the lover everyday life recedes," Roth writes - and exhibiting all his skill as a brilliant observer of human passion, he presents in Deception the tightly enclosed world of adulterous intimacy with a directness that has no equal in American fiction.

At the center of Deception are two adulterers in their hiding place. He is a middle-aged American writer named Philip, living in London, and she is an articulate, intelligent, well-educated Englishwoman compromised by a humiliating marriage to which, in her 30s, she is already nervously half-resigned.

The book's action consists of conversation - mainly the lovers talking to each other before and after making love. That dialogue - sharp, rich, playful, inquiring, "moving", as Hermione Lee writes, "on a scale of pain from furious bafflement to stoic gaiety" - is nearly all there is to this audiobook, and all there needs to be.

Kritikerstimmen

"This swift, elegant, disturbing novel...stands at the extreme of contemporary fiction." ( The New York Times Book Review)
" Deception is itself deceptive, as elegant and ingenious as anything in The Ghost Writer or The Prague Orgy." ( New Republic)
"A fiendishly clever piece of work...an amazing feat....He's invented the purest speech, the most convincing cadences, of any American novelist." ( Hudson Review)
