Philip Roth

A sad day - Philip Roth has announced his retirement:

For me, a superb writer and one whose novels I have been reading for as long as I can remember. Although his more recent works have perhaps not quite reached the highs of the likes of American Pastoral or Portnoy's Complaint, they still outshine most novels. I feel that his final work, Nemesis, is as good a place as any to retire on. A truly touching work.

My personal favourite remains Sabbath's Theatre - a truly shocking, moving and hilarious novel.
