Description:

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.

The essential collection of nonfiction by a true American master, Reading Myself and Others features his long interview with the Paris Review.
