The Human Stain - Phillip Roth
Retired professor Coleman Silk has a secret. His secret is deep and lies at the very core of who he is, and he has kept it hidden from everyone for fifty years. Set in 1998, with the backdrop of the impeachment of a president, The Human Stain shows an America where conflicting moralities and ideological division result in public denunciations and houndings, and where innocence is not always a good enough excuse.
