Below is the synopsis.  It's an excellent book, covering a lot of territory.
Yes, I'd recommend it, especially with Silver's reading.  However,
unabridged, Roth can pound a single thought just a little too long at times.
But what do I know?

Pulitzer Prize Winner
Winner of Audio Publishers Association 1998 Audie Award, Best Solo Narration
by a Male.

Seymour "Swede" Levov is a prosperous, hard-working family man who comes of
age in America's triumphant postwar era. The owner of a Newark glove
factory, Swede leads a blissful existence, complete with a 170-year-old
stone farmhouse, a beautiful wife - Miss New Jersey 1949 - and a lively,
precocious daughter. But when the country begins to run amok in the 1960s,
Swede's perfect world crumbles. His cherished daughter becomes a
revolutionary terrorist, bent on destroying everything her father holds
dear. In chronicling Swede's rise and fall, author Philip Roth paints a
vivid portrait of a man swept away by a current of conflict and violence in
his own backyard.
