About this title

Synopsis:

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
