The Plot Against America by Philip Roth
Posted by austinburns on May 27, 2006
Wow. What a great book. What a weird book. What a creative book. This book is about what happens when Charles Lindberg wins the presidency at the start of World War II. He keeps America out of war and starts a sort of “Anti-Semitism lite” policy. The story centers around a young boy, Philip Roth (it’s written as kind of a memoir), and his Jewish family living in Newark. His family goes through the best and the worst of the new presidency.
Also, at the end of the book, he gives a true timeline of all the player’s involved. Great reading.
