Philip Roth’s Intimate Farewell through Chamber Music
The last time I heard from Philip Roth was in October of last year.
“Philip died with his reputation at a kind of pinnacle, and was widely accepted as being one of the greatest writers of the 20th century.”
Beyonce’s muse explains how you can love Roth, even as a feminist.

Roth’s chronicle of his generation is as insightful as that which Moykher-Sforim, Aleichem and Peretz dedicated to the Jews of the Pale of Settlement.
Michael Pollan had enlightenment envy.
“To have to deny the actuality of ‘schmutz’ is to make Jews less than human.” — Philip Roth
Despite Roth forbidding Jewish rituals at his funeral ceremony, “He said he wants to be buried near Jews so he has someone to talk to.”
It’s Memorial Day weekend, and as we remember those who have given their lives for our country, we have also earned a bit of rest.
