Philip Roth recently announced his retirement which I openly and selfishly protest. More recently I watched the American Masters documentary Philip Roth: Unmasked. Both of these events and a GoodReads challenge have driven me to set a goal of reading every Philip Roth book in order before the end of 2013. I begin with Goodbye, Columbus and will post commentary as I progress. This is a record for myself and any interested in one of the greatest American novelists.
