9780099485025: Reading Myself and Others

The interviews, essays and articles collected in this book span a quarter of a century of Philip Roth's distinguished career and 'reveal a preoccupation with the relationship between the written and the unwritten world.' Here is Roth on himself and his work and the controversies it's engendered. Here too are Roth's writings on the Eastern European writers he has always championed; and on baseball, American fiction, and American Jews. The essential collection of nonfiction by a true master, Reading Myself and Others features his long interview with the Paris Review.

About the Author:

In 1997, Philip Roth won the Pulitzer Prize for American Pastoral. In 1998 he received the National Medal of Arts at the White House and in 2002 the highest award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Gold Medal in Fiction, previously awarded to John Dos Passos, William Faulkner and Saul Bellow, among others. He has twice won the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. He has won the PEN/Faulkner Award three times. In 2005 The Plot Against America received the Society of American Historians' Prize for "the outstanding historical novel on an American theme for 2003-2004." Recently Roth received PEN's two most prestigious prizes: in 2006 the PEN/Nabokov Award 'for a body of work...of enduring originality and consummate craftmanship' and in 2007 the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for achievement in American Fiction, given to a writer whose 'scale of achievement over a sustained career...places him or her in the highest rank of American literature.' Roth is the only living American writer to have his work published in a comprehensive, definitive edition by the Library of America. The last of the eight volumes is scheduled for publication in 2013.

Review:

"Awfully good" New York Times "Irresistibly articulate" Financial Times "He is utterly and intensely American, a voice, perhaps the voice, of the last decades of what was billed as "the American century" Wall Street Journal "Excellent...Roth's sensitivity to the balance of situations in his own fiction is Jamesian in its subtlety...consistently thoughtful and thoroughly engaging" Washington Post "An illuminating glimpse of the theory and practice that have made Roth a major figure in American fiction... Reveals a first-rate mind" Chicago Daily News
