Philip Roth died one year ago today, May 22, 2018.
I did not know that.
Thank goodness for the internet.
I might have gone my whole life without knowing that bit of trivia.
My parents LOVED Portnoy’s Complaint.
I had never read it, but finally, after finding this book on a “must read” list, I dove in.
I hated it.
Philip Roth, through Alex Portnoy, inspired an entire generation of men to follow his overbearing, self-absorbed and whiny example.
I will not be reading any more Roth.
