In honor of the recent passing of Philip Roth, we’re reading one of his lesser-known works, “The Plot Against America.” Imagine an America where famed aviator Charles Lindbergh becomes president and America stays out of WWII, and a cordial “understanding” is negotiated with Nazi Germany. But Roth goes beyond typical dystopia in playing out the impact on his teenage self and his family in his trademark intensely autobiographical style. Although the book is a good companion piece for fans of Phillip K. Dick’s “The Man in the High Castle” and the lesser-known “Focus” by Arthur Miller, it has some eerie parallels to the present. We meet in the back room (behind the children’s section) of the Midtown Scholar. Please RSVP and/or send questions to Joe Foner at joefoner1@gmail.com. See you there, and happy reading!
