RIP Philip Roth

In my opinion, the best novelist of the last 20-30 years.


  • Portnoy's Complaint, funniest book I ever read. RIP
  • Superb writer. Particularly loved American Pastoral and Sabbath's Theater, and the Plot against America is disturbingly relevant in the current climate. Roth was a great chronicler of American life and certainly one of the major writers of the last 50 years. RIP.
  • Brilliant writer. Pity he's gone.
  • Just read The Human Stain. Very good writer.
  • Seconded for "The Human Stain". Kicked Mailer and Updike into the long grass.

  • A tremendous writer - a subversive sense of humour like no other. RIP
  • Human stain is well worth a read . I would put him up there with Don De Lillo
