Appointed by Philip Roth and granted independence and complete access, biographer Blake Bailey spent years poring over Roth’s personal archive, interviewing his friends, lovers, and colleagues, and engaging Roth himself in breathtakingly candid conversations. The result is an indelible portrait of an American master and of the postwar literary scene. Philip Roth: The Biography has been named one of the Most Anticipated Books of 2021 by Oprah Magazine, Chicago Tribune, the Guardian, and The Times (UK), Financial Times, and others. Don’t miss Blake Bailey’s fascinating presentation and discussion with guest moderator Professor Michael Hoberman.
