'A landmark of the American literary century' Boston Globe

Sixty years after the publication of his great modernist masterpiece, Call It Sleep, Henry Roth returned with Mercy of a Rude Stream - a sequence of four internationally-acclaimed epic novels of immigrant life in early-twentieth century New York.
Ira Stigman's polarised life has never been more difficult. On one side is Edith Welles, his supporter, friend and lover; she believes in him. On the other is his shameful immigrant origins, his poverty, his family with their arguments and lack of sophistication. Then there is his incestuous relations with his sister and his cousin, who may be pregnant.

This fourth and final volume, published posthumously, brings to a close one of America's most extraordinary literary odysseys.

'Fresh and touching' Wall Street Journal

'A precision of detail which brings the sounds from the tenements, the heat of the sidewalk steaming off the pages' Sunday Express

Recensione:
The Ur-novel at the heart of American literature - Mercy of a Rude Stream is a towering achievement (Junot Diaz)

Henry Roth has only two peers in American-English Jewish fiction, Nathanael West and Philip Roth (Harold Bloom)

The literary comeback of the century (Vanity Fair)

A masterpiece ... It is not remotely like anything else in American literature.... It is this pitiless examination of a writer grappling with his demons, at the highest reaches of his intellectual capacity, that gives Mercy of a Rude Stream its ferocious passion.... It is the exhilaration felt by a man who has cast off six decades of self-repression and finally feels himself free (The New York Review of Books)

Roth creates his own Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man--a marvelously poetic chronicle (Chicago Sun-Times)

Mr. Roth's innovative use of language is both beautiful and highly realistic ... Although there is no style called Rothian, there should be (New York Times Book Review)

This novel is as unquenchably vibrant with life as the immigrants whose existence it commemorates (Sunday Times)

A genuine publishing event ... unbeatable in [its] drama, tension and feeling (Literary Review)
