I enjoyed this speculative fiction novel... the premise of FDR losing his third term is an interesting one. The narrator (also named Phillip Roth) was rather charming, but the style of the book as a whole - chronological to an extent, with phrases were completely too far ahead - was a little annoying at times, and overall, the book didn't seem to go far enough... the Lindbergh years seemed erased by the happy ending, lending an implausible aspect to the book. Still, it was certainly an interesting read.
