Roth's second novel and third book overall. This came out before "Portnoy's Complaint" brought him fame and controversy. "When She Was Good" is recommended only for the serious Roth fan and much of its interest comes from how Roth was still trying to find his style and subject. It's also of interest because he is so often casually accused of misogyny and this has a female protagonist, albeit a rather overwrought and unlikable one. Again, this is probably best for someone who has already read quite a bit of Roth. Bummer of an ending too.
