The Anatomy Lesson is a great comedy of illness written in what the English critic Hermione Lee has described as "a manner at once...brash and thoughtful... lyrical and wry, which projects through comic expostulations and confessions...a knowing, humane authority." The third volume of the trilogy and epilogue "Zuckerman Bound," The Anatomy Lesson provides some of the funniest scenes in all of Roth's fiction as well as some of the fiercest.
"The Anatomy Lesson is a ferocious, heartfelt book...lavish with laughs and flamboyant inventions." —John Updike, The New Yorker
"Roth has a genius for the comedy of entrapment.... [He] writes America's most raucously funny novels." —Time
"One of Roth's most unsparing and revealing books...forceful and startling." —Newsday
