Rereading Roth

Thursday, January 10, 2013

To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life. – W. Somerset Maugham

When I heard that Philip Roth has decided to retire from writing, I told myself that it’s now time to revisit his books. Rereading five decades’ worth of his work is a tribute to the author and an indulgence I can’t possibly resist.

My birthday is just around the corner. And what could be a more precious gift that I can give myself than to bask in the exciting novelty and comforting familiarity of my cherished books?
