Philip Roth wins the Man Booker International Prize

The acclaimed and controversial American novelist Philip Roth has been awarded the Man Booker International Prize; a biennial award that “highlights one writer’s overall contribution to fiction on the world stage.” During the course of his literary career, Roth’s work has ranged from the bitter satire of Portnoy’s Complaint to the imaginative social commentary of novels such as The Plot Against America and the Pulitzer Prize-winning American Pastoral.

The Literatures and Languages Library has a number of introductory texts and more focused scholarly works aimed at guiding readers through Roth’s extensive body of work. You can find many of these titles through the library catalog, under the subject heading “Roth, Philip–criticism and interpretation.”
