Description
It is the summer of 1944, and in the "stifling heat of equatorial Newark" a polio epidemic is raging, threatening the children of the New Jersey city with maiming, paralysis, lifelong disability, or death. At the center of Nemesis is Bucky Cantor, a decent, energetic phys ed teacher, rejected by the military, who enters into his own private war against the epidemic.

"The fourth in the great and undiminished Roth's recent cycle of short novels follows Everyman, Indignation, and The Humbling, and as exceptional as those novels are, this latest in the series far exceeds its predecessors in both emotion and intellect."Booklist (starred review)

"Yet another small triumph, and by small I mean in length.... This dual portrait, of a neighborhood and of a man quite representative of the times when trouble struck his neighborhood with lethal force, gives this new novel a singular appeal."Chicago Tribune

"Roth's book has the elegance of a fable and the tragic inevitability of a Greek drama."The New Yorker
