9780374247539: Reading Myself and Others

The interviews, essays, and articles collected here span a quarter 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 American master, Reading Myself and Others features his long interview with the Paris Review.

From the Back Cover:

"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

"Roth [is] fearless in his own defense and in defense of literature." —Michael Mewshaw, Texas Monthly

"Excellent.... Roth's sensitivity to the balance of situations in his own fiction is Jamesian in its subtlety, and indeed in its nature this book is closer to James's prefaces than to any other book...consistently thoughtful and thoroughly engaging." —Larry McMurtry, The Washington Post

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. 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 awards: in 2006 the PEN/Nabokov Award and in 2007 the PEN/Bellow Award for achievement in American fiction. Roth is the only living American novelist to have his work published in a comprehensive, definitive edition by the Library of America. In 2011 he received the National Humanities Medal at the White House, and was later named the fourth recipient of the Man Booker International Prize.
