A fascinating glimpse into the mind of one of America's greatest living writers

The interviews, essays and articles collected in this book span a quarter of a century of Philip Roth's distinguished career and 'reveal a preocupation with the relationship bewteen the written and the unwritten world.' Here is Roth on himself and his work and the controversies it's engendered. Here too are Roth's writings on the Eastern European writers he has always championed; and on baseball, American fiction, and American Jews. The essential collection of nonfiction by a true master, READING MYSELF AND OTHERS features his long interview with the Paris Review.
