Philip Roth and World Literature: Transatlantic Perspectives and Uneasy Passages by Velichka D. Ivanova
Far from insular, Roth’s work appears as deeply rooted in the American canon while at the same time showing a remarkable openness, a persistent need for contact with his European forebears, and true engagement with contemporary world literature. A book like this is long overdue because not many are aware of the numerous intersections between Philip Roth’s fiction and world literature.
