Philip Roth Not Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature Again



I wish I could write that they had finally awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature to Philip Roth, but again… I don’t think that any other writer has taught me more about American than Philip Roth; and if you’ve never read American Pastoral or The Human Stain or even Sabbath’s Theater (a book that contains too much humour to be truly offensive) you won’t know why I’m disappointed that he was passed over, yet again.
