Philip Milton Roth (March 19, 1933 – May 22, 2018) was an American novelist and short-story writer. Roth's fiction, regularly set in his birthplace of Newark, New Jersey, is known for its intensely autobiographical character, for philosophically and formally blurring the distinction between reality and fiction, for its "sensual, ingenious style" and for its provocative explorations of American identity.

Philip Roth undoubtedly will be regarded as a major American writer. The Humbling' is in my opinion one of the weakest of Roth's close to thirty books. The Library of America is to be commended for publishing its definitive collection of Roth's works. This "Nemeses" volume offers an excellent way to get to know his late works. The tale of the veteran actor who loses his life- meaning with his losing his ability to act simply does not convince. The lead character is thin, and the story of his love- affair in old age seems contrived and unreal. Indignation' is a more substantial work but harsh and difficult. It was for me one of the least enjoyable of Roth's books.
We should hope for new Philip Roths. In 1997, Philip Roth won the Pulitzer Prize for American Pastoral and in 2002 he received the highest award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Gold Medal in Fiction, previously awarded to John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, and Saul Bellow, among others.
