Nathan Zuckerman returns to New York in the long-awaited final installment of Philip Roth's renowned Zuckerman series. Alone for eleven years on his New England mountain, Zuckerman has been nothing but a writer: no media, no terrorist threats, no women, no tasks other than his work and the enduring of old age. Walking the streets of New York after so many years away, he quickly makes three connections that explode his carefully protected solitude. Suddenly involved, as he never wanted or intended to be again, with love, mourning, desire, and animosity, Zuckerman plays out an interior drama of vivid and poignant possibilities.

"EXIT GHOST is purportedly the final installment in the saga of Nathan Zuckerman, the fictional alter ego of Philip Roth. In this novel, Zuckerman returns to New York City, where he encounters a woman from his past, an overzealous biographer, and a much younger woman who leads him into tortured temptation. The accent that George Guidall gives to this young woman, a Texan, is oddly consistent, but that is the only quibble with his performance. Of the many qualities that make him one of the best narrators in the business is his facility with the voices of female characters. He manages to make them sound feminine without overdoing the higher pitches. D.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
