Philip Roth died a few months ago. I have to admit that Portnoy’s Complaint is one of my favorite books of all time. He was one of our greatest writers.

I haven't liked everything of his, but given his huge talent and complexity, that would be a fascinating watch!

Re: Philip Roth: Unmasked

I believe this was shown shortly before he died. It is very well done. I love a lot of his work. I always believed he would win the Nobel Prize for literature, and hoped he would be alive to see it. Still hope he will. 

This year and maybe next no prize due to sexual misconduct within committee.

Another one of my favorites Alice Munro was honored a few years back. Her writing is the antithesis of Roth’s.

Greatness takes many forms.
