A View of Philip Roth That Is Not Phillip Roth's

jx (19).jpg

Philip Roth put a lot of words to paper in a long writing career, and sold many books and won many awards as a result.

He also stirred up quite a bit of controversy along the way, for his depictions of sex, race and racial stereotypes, and his attitudes toward women.

There was more to Roth than met the page, including the things he left out of his authorized biography, out earlier this year.

Jacques Berlinerblau just released his own take, in The Philip Roth We Don't Know: Sex, Race, and Autobiography.

Berlinerblau visits the JX to share some details from his research and writing on Roth.
