Everyman by Philip Roth
Everyman begins with the funeral of its unnamed protagonist in a decaying cemetery in New Jersey. Then his life is retold, from his encounters with death that started when he was a child, to his marriages, children, and infidelities that marked his life. His two sons from his first marriage resent him, and the only person close to him is the daughter from his second marriage. He had a successful career in advertising, but his personal failings are matched by his health problems. He watches others die and he eventually needs to enter an assisted living facility. As his body draws him closer to death, he finds himself jealous of his older brother and his good health. Philip Roth, fresh from his own health problems, confronts the inevitability of death. Everyman has received mostly positive reviews with the Boston Globe saying, "Everyman is a swift, brutal novel about a heartbreakingly ordinary subject, and it is also testament to Roth that the book leaves you a little breathless and not at all bereft."
