Winner of the National Book Award
Sabbath's Theater is a comic creation of epic proportions, and Mickey Sabbath is its gargantuan hero. Once a scandalously inventive puppeteer, Sabbath at sixty-four is still defiantly antagonistic and exceedingly libidinous. But after the death of his long-time mistress, Sabbath embarks on a turbulent journey into his past.
This splendidly wicked book...is among the most remarkable novels in recent years.... The energy of the book is amazing.... Roth is hilariously serious about life and death.-- New York Times Book Review

About 70 percent of this book was devoted to graphic sexual experiences and descriptions which got a little old after while. The other 30 percent was an interesting insight into the mind and life of an aging man whose choices and actions have put him in the postion of having virtually no resouces. His way of dealing with this and his will to live life on his own terms provides an insight to a unique way of looking at life.
