The Plot Against America - Philip Roth


Paperback

£1.50

When the renowned aviation hero and rabid isolationist Charles

A. Lindbergh defeated Franklin Roosevelt by a landslide in the 1940 presidential election, fear invaded every Jewish household in America. Not only had Lindbergh publicly blamed the Jews for pushing America towards a pointless war with Nazi Germany, but, upon taking office as the thirty-third president of the United States, he negotiated a cordial ‘understanding’ with Adolf Hitler.

What then followed is the historical setting for this startling new book by Pulitzer Prize-winner Philip Roth, who recounts what it was like for his Newark family – and for a million such families all over the country – during the menacing years of the Lindbergh presidency, when American citizens who happened to be Jews had every reason to expect the worst.
