Roth creates an alternative world in which Charles Lindbergh defeats F.D.R. in the 1940 presidential election, and Philip, his parents and brother weather the storm in Newark, N.J. Incorporating Lindbergh's actual radio address in which he accused the British and the Jews of trying to force America into a foreign war, Roth builds an eerily logical narrative that shows how isolationists in and out of government, emboldened by Lindbergh's blatant anti-Semitism enact new laws and create an atmosphere of religious hatred that culminates into nationwide pogroms--Publisher.
