Roth. God.

For those of you who missed it, the Sunday Times had a great refreshers course in the work of the peerless, magisterial American novelist Philip Roth in the Culture mag last week. It can be viewed here. Roth publishes his latest novel Exit Ghost this autumn, but for those who haven't had the pleasure yet, I'd recommend tackling his astonishing 'America' trilogy from the late 1990s - I Married A Communist, American Pastoral and The Human Stain, three novels that are breathtaking in their intellectual, linguistic, social and historical sweep. This guy is just awesome. Nobel Prize in Literature NOW! Don't make me come out there to Stockholm.
