MY LIFE AS A MAN is a book published by Philip Roth in 1974.
Peter Tarnopol is a very successful young writer trying to get rid of his psychotic wife Maureen by all the New-York legal ways. Condemned to pay high alimonies to her, he wants to describe their relationship in his second novel. He will be helped in his task by Dr. Spielvogel, a psychiatrist who's patiently hearing Peter's nightmarish souvenirs. Peter Tarnopol will discover, a little too late, that he can't adopt in everyday life the same behaviour and attitudes of the heroes of the great novels of Literature.
Ferociously misogynous. Highly recommended.
