Philip Roth aos 75 anos

Com o novo livro, Indignation, já disponível nas livrarias, Philip Roth conversa com Robert McCrum sobre o seu trabalho, a disciplina da escrita e o tempo que passa.

Among his peers, there has been a steady winnowing: Arthur Miller, George Plimpton, Kurt Vonnegut, and most recently, Norman Mailer. These were not all close friends, but he knows he's playing in injury time."
