Latest Issue of Philip Roth Studies

The latest issue of Philip Roth Studies (Vol. 7, No. 2) has just been released, and members of the Roth Society, if they do not already have their copies, should be receiving them soon. The table of contents includes:

  • Editor’s Column

  • Framing the Cusp of Celebrity: Bob Peterson’s 1968 Photographs of Philip Roth – Derek Parker Royal

  • Contemporary American Fiction and the Confluence of Don DeLillo, Cormac McCarthy, Toni Morrison, Philip Roth, and John Updike: A Roundtable Discussion

  • Arthur Koestler and Meyer Levin: The Trivial, the Tragic, and Rationalization Post Factum in Roth’s “Eli, the Fanatic.” – James Duban

  • The Sene of an Ending: Alternative History in Philip Roth’s The Plot Against America - Ginevra Geraci

  • Putting a Finger on That Hollow Emptiness in Roth’s Indignation – Frederick Luis Aldama

  • Annual Bibliography of Philip Roth Criticism and Resources-2010 – Derek Parker Royal

This is a particularly special issue of Philip Roth Studies, in that we feature photographs from award-winning photographer, Bob Peterson, who covered Roth for Life Magazine in late 1968, just months before the publication of Portnoy’s Complaint. Most of the photographs have never before been published, and they all show a young, vibrant novelist before the explosion of literary celebrity.
