Everyman is Philip Roth's book about Philip Roth. Do you care about Philip Roth? Enough to read a whole book in which he wonders at an old age whether he's been a good person or not?

Everyman is Philip Roth's book about Philip Roth. This book is less about the horror of facing your inevitable death, and more about the hell you can create for yourself in old age if you lived like a bastard your whole life. I know Phillip Roth would punch me in the face for saying this, but I think that even though he so vehemently argues against religion in Everyman, the book actually kinda creates a case for, if not religion, then at least living by some kind of moral code.

Roth has been hailed as the most compelling of living writers.

Philip Roth quotes not these lines from Yeats but those of Keats as epigraph to his latest novel: "Here where men sit and hear each other groan;, Where palsy shakes a few, sad, last grey hairs,, Where youth grows pale, and spectre-thin, and dies;, Where but to think is to be full of sorrow. For three of the world's best novelists, Fuentes, García Márquez and Roth, the violent upsurge of sexual desire in the face of old age is the opposition of man to his own creation, death. The final kick of the prostate, my old physician friend called it.

Do yourself a favor! Leave it unread. If you are a man under 50 ... I specify "man" because Philip Roth is generally unpalatable for women readers ... who has parents or grandparents he still loves, the book will be depressing and/or embarrassing. If you are a man over 50, with your mind and memory intact, it will be depressing, possibly terrifying. The narrative begins with the funeral of a Man, a mundane Jewish joe, whose life-to-death history is then recounted in steely-cold third person. But the short novel Everyman is not about Death; it's about the Thought of Death, the Fear of Death if you will. And it's not about Nothingness; it's about Waiting for Nothingness. The writer behind the Everyman Mask is Philip Roth, of course, so there's some pathetically mortal scenes of sex, none of which satisfy Everyman's lust for Immortality. This is not a feel-good "acceptance" of Death novel. Not at all! Everyman does not "go gentle into that good night." His anti-acceptance of Death is paired with his reluctance to forgive himself for his life.

If, Dear Reader, you have not yet been persuaded NOT to read Roth's Everyman, hey, go ahead at your own peril! It is, after all, a masterpiece of self-realization, brilliantly honest, brilliantly true. The old man Roth, the dying animal who foresees no future for literature, may well be the greatest living novelist.

Philip Roth died last week. Not having read anything of his since Portnoy's Complaint, years ago, and hearing mention of Everyman on NPR, I ordered and read it quickly.

Written in 2006, the book won the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction in 2007. Really? I didn't like it. It wasn't enjoyable to read, nor enlightening. The character wasn't likable and his life seemed pointless. That was apparently the point, but it wasn't interesting.

Here's a sample of his musing of "the mortal suffering of every man and woman he happened to have known during all his years of professional life, of each one's painful story of regret and loss and stoicism, of fear and panic and isolation and dread,... of every last thing they had parted with that had once been vitally theirs and...how, systematically, they were being destroyed..."

The best part of the book was 7 pages of his conversation with a grave digger, who told in great detail, and with pride in his work, how he carefully dug a grave.

The popularity and critical acclaim that Philip Roth has earned over the course of a fifty year literary career must stem from some basic truths that appeal to a fairly wide audience of readers and critics. If these truths weren't clear by now, "Everyman" makes them readily apparent: Philip Roth's works speak to the struggles, angst, foibles and follies of the educated upper middle class American male. What women may think of Philip Roth I have no idea, except by judging the reactions of female readers, which tend to be much less positive than male readers' reactions. Perhaps what Oprah and "The View" do for women, Philip Roth does for men.

The basic structure of "Everyman" is a man recounting (and often lamenting) the major episodes in his life, as he looks back while facing the inevitable and yet unpredictable end. "Everyman" springs from earth that Roth has tilled many times before: childhood in northeastern New Jersey; love, intimacy, marriage and divorce; family, especially fathers and brothers; and physical ailments and death. There is a particular emphasis in "Everyman" on the travails of aging, and the inevitable, inexorable decline as each person falls from the height of his powers to an often slow, agonizing, lonely death.

Although the details of each man's life differ, I believe that many upper middle class American men will identify with the struggles of the main character in "Everyman". He divorces three times, and while not every American man will do so, I think most will be able to identify with the forces that the main character struggles with. As time goes on, he ends up estranged from several close relations and his loneliness mounts, which are certainly issues that many older people face. The portrayal that "Everyman" presents of aging and death is not a nice one, but it may be an all too common one.

Being a short novel, "Everyman" does not have the space for long tangential off-shoots of narrative, or passages rooted in alternate realities, or other literary techniques employed by Roth in his longer works. In that sense it is one of his more straightforward works, and yet it does read as a complete unabbreviated work. Because Roth is capable of much more inventive works of literature, I wouldn't rank "Everyman" among his best, but for what it is, a short novel, it did please this reader.

Everyman takes us on a life journey and as everyone knows by know, Roth was using the great medieval allegorical drama of the same title as his model. This is a book about cosmic angst, about facing the oblivion that awaits us as we age. Roth has tackled this subject before--in some sense, all major writers have tackled it. In the introduction to Slaughterhouse Five, Kurt Vonnegut, quoting Ferdinand Celine writes, "No art is possible without a duty dance with death." So here is Roth's duty dance, although he has certainly waltzed across this floor before in the Zuckerman books, "Sabbath's Theater,""The Dying Animal," and in many other of his 26 books.

The treatment here is a bit different--more relentless and focussed, although at the same time, more generalized and abstract. Although all of the people around the unnamed narrator are specified, he remains something of a cipher, and certainly doesn't have the presence of a Zuckerman or a Portnoy. Nonetheless, the book makes for engaging reading. Roth's lesser works are more compelling than the work of most American writers.
