Description

AN AMERICAN TYPE by Henry Roth (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “A passionate, life-embracing conclusion to Roth’s bold and cathartic magnum opus.” (Booklist) When Ira abandons his controlling lover in favor of a blond aristocratic pianist, the ensuing conflict between his Jewish ghetto roots and his high-flown, writerly aspirations forces him to head for the sun-soaked promise of the West. An American Type is perhaps the last firsthand testament of the Depression, as well as a universal statement about the constant reinvention of American identity and the transcendence of love. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones® and Audie® Award-winning narrator, Anthony Heald. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. The story of Henry Roth is one of the most remarkable in American literature.

The ensuing conflict between his Jewish ghetto roots and his high-flown, writerly aspirations forces Ira to abandon his family temporarily for the sun-soaked promise of the American West.
