RIP Philip Roth

That’s a lot of influential, infuriating, and often brilliant American writing gone in the last month.

There has been. RIP Philip Roth. Very influential. I never liked his work, though not for trying. He fit in the infuriating category for me. I think all the “YAWN” authors in the 80s owe a large debt to him, and Wolfe too, weirdly.
