Philip Roth plunges into high-stakes intrigue when confronted with a look-alike who uses the author's celebrity status for outlandish political purposes. Roth may out-talk, outwit and even out-impersonate the impostor, but his own fears and fascinations are harder to fight. The weapon of choice is an irresistible mastery of language, and it is wielded mightily by Fritz Weaver. Somehow he contains it in a fountain of crisp and impassioned elocution. His sonorous voice and obvious care and preparation infuse each line with credibility. Seemingly rapt with the intelligence and wit of what he's saying, Weaver nails every nuance of pace, accent and mood. His energy and vulnerability convincingly capture Roth's complex spirit. D.J.
