SALE: Philip Roth

The Nobel Prize’s Susan Lucci, Philip Roth, may think that the novel will be nearly dead (“I’m not dead yet!” “He’s only MOSTLY dead.”) in 25 years, but that’s not going to stop me from pointing out a small group of his novels I just catalogued. Been meaning to do more “blog” specials. And now that my ducks are more or less back in a row following my recent move, here goes:
