Philip Roth Studies 16.1 is headed to press and should be out soon. The special issue, entitled "Roth Remembered," is edited by Matthew Shipe and Andy Connolly and features a number of international Roth scholars as well as work by the acclaimed novelist Elisa Albert, who delivered one of the keynote addresses at last April's "Roth Remembered" conference. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the issue and we hope you enjoy it.
Charles McGrath, who delivered the keynote address at last April's "Roth Remembered" conference, has a piece in The New York Times on the David Simon's adaptation of The Plot Against America.
