The Breast

Philip Roth

Farrar, Straus and Giroux

David Kepesh wakes up one morning in the hospital, mysteriously altered. Through an endocrinopathic catastrophe of unprecedented proportions, he has been transformed into a 155-pound human female breast. Railing at the incomprehensible, he uses his intelligence to deny and resist the thing he has become. Ultimately, he must accept his fate. Philip Roths The Breast is a funny, fantastical story and a bizarre yet daring exploration of sex and subjectivity.
