Roth, Art (and Life) Of

Philip Roth seems never to have been that interested in stepping very far outside of his own life and experiences, and there may be no living writer who so constantly warns against biographical criticism, even as he repeatedly tests and tempts it.

Carlin Romano takes the plunge.
