Later this year Philip Roth will be featured on PBS’ American Masters series.
Philip Roth: Unmasked will air on March 29, ten days after Roth’s 80th birthday. The novelist spoke via satellite earlier this week during a panel discussion in Los Angeles of the Television Critics Association. He said he doesn’t watch a lot of television, but he does make time for American Masters.
He announced recently that his 2010 novel Nemesis would be his last. He told Tim Molloy in a recent interview that he has not changed his mind and that life was going smoothly. “I’m doing fine without writing,” said. ”Someone should have told me about this earlier.”
