Focusing on Roth's famed "voluminous productivity since the mids," Rowe calls the novels written then, and since, Roth's "most ambitious and politically relevant, as well as technically superb in formal conception and stylistic execution" It's not that Roth achieved a sudden profundity or prescience, even topicality, in his later work.
