in the hilarious, but true class, paul fussell irreverently crushes the sacred american myth of social equality. it's a guide to the signs, symbols, and customs of american class that are revealed by our houses, objects, artifacts, speech, clothing styles, and intellectual proclivities, covering everyone from the top to the bottom. this book is guaranteed to amuse and infuriate, whether your class is so high it's out of sight (literally) or you are, alas, a sinking victim of prole drift.

American Pastoral: A Novel American Trilogy (1)
"American" Novels | American Pastoral by Philip Roth
As the American century draws to an uneasy close, Philip Roth gives us a novel of unqualified greatness that is an elegy for all our century's promises of prosperity, civic order, and domestic bliss. Roth's protagonist is Swede Levov, a legendary athlete at his Newark high school, who grows up in the booming postwar years to marry a former Miss New Jersey, inherit his father's glove factory, and move into a stone house in the idyllic hamlet of Old Rimrock. And then one day in 1968, Swede's beautiful American luck deserts him.
