What impact can American history have on the life of the vulnerable individual? It is 1951 in America, the second year of the Korean War. A studious, law-abiding, intense youngster from Newark, New Jersey, Marcus Messner, is beginning his sophomore year on the pastoral, conservative campus of Ohio's Winesburg College. And why is he there and not at the local college in Newark where he originally enrolled? Because his father, the sturdy, hard-working neighborhood butcher, seems to have gone mad--mad with fear and apprehension of the dangers of adult life, the dangers of the world, the dangers he sees in every corner for his beloved boy. As the long-suffering, desperately harassed mother tells her son, the father's fear arises from love and pride. Perhaps, but it produces too much anger in Marcus for him to endure living with his parents any longer. He leaves them and, far from Newark, in the midwestern college, has to find his way amid the customs and constrictions of another American world.--From publisher's description.… (mer)

Marcus Messner, son of a Jewish butcher in New Jersey in 1951, tells us at the start that he is dead. He relates how he got there at such a young age: He goes to college at a local community college and loves it. But he does not love his father's constant watchdogging of everything he does. He won't leave him alone. To escape his father's fear, Marcus heads for Winesburg College in Ohio.

The typical college experience in 1951, during the Korean Conflict, was not anything Marcus was prepared for. He is a serious atheist in a college that requires attendance at a Christian service regularly. He can't just "go along", as others advise him to do. He chooses instead to follow the advice of a popular Jewish upperclassman and pay someone to go to chapel for him. He bumps headlong into conflict with the headmaster, who sees Marcus's admiration for Bertrand Russell as little short of betrayal of everything that is America.

His insistence on following his principles ultimately leads to his death. A short, tragic, yet often comic, life, revealing the lack of acceptance of diversity in the 1950s, as well as the naivete that afflicted so many young people then and now. ( )

Marcus, a young man living in New Jersey in the 1950's, lives at home and is attending a local college. When his father's behavior becomes a bit erratic and overprotective, Marcus decides it's time to escape, and he enrolls himself into a small private college in Ohio, where he is one of only a few Jewish students. As Marcus attempts to navigate college life away from home, he discovers more about his own personality, as well as his ability to establish new relationships with those who fall outside his comfort zone.

I'd not read any Philip Roth before, so wasn't sure what to expect when I started this. I initially enjoyed Roth's writing style -- he seems to develop his characters quite well. But there were times when the writing became tedious and overdone, and I felt additional editing may have been beneficial. Parts of this short novel were very funny, and other parts were very sad. The ending kind of came out of nowhere for me, and the rather abrupt transition may have been accentuated by listening on audio rather than reading on paper. Regardless, I was left scratching my head a bit, and unsure how I felt about the story's resolution. I wasn't previously aware that there was a movie adaptation, but I'm quite curious to see it now.

Während des Koreakriegs nimmt der fleißige, gehorsame und gefühlstiefe Marcus Messner aus Newark ein Studium in einem ländlichen, konservativen College in Ohio auf – auf Wunsch seines Vaters, den die Angst vor den Gefahren des modernen Erwachsenenlebens für seinen geliebten Sohn schier wahnsinnig macht. Fern von daheim muss Marcus sich in einem anderen, fremden Amerika zurechtfinden.

The story of a young Jewish boy struggling to find freedom for his thoughts from those of his oppressive father and the confining nature of his midwestern college. Set during the Korean War. ( )

The book is about how seemingly small decisions can have disproportionate effects. ( )

In his famous essay "Writing American Fiction," written back in 1960, Roth spoke about the difficulty of writing credibly about the time we live in. "It stupefies, it sickens, it infuriates, and finally it is even a kind of embarrassment to one's meager imagination." As his new book and his many other novels show, it can be done by a master.

Ungefähr zweieinhalb Monate nachdem die gutausgebildeten, von den Sowjets und den chinesischen Kommunisten mit Waffen ausgerüsteten Divisionen Nordkoreas am 25. Juni 1950 über den 38. Breitengrad vorgedrungen waren und mit dem Einmarsch in Südkorea das große Leid des Koreakriegs begonnen hatte, kam ich auf Robert Treat, ein kleines College in Newark, benannt nach dem Mann, der die Stadt im siebzehnten Jahrhundert gegründet hatte.
