New Philip Roth


The Humbling by Philip Roth just arrived. I read the following quote in the guardian and wondered if this sentiment has anything to do with the page count of The Humbling (140 with a font that is quite easy on the eyes)

"To read a novel requires a certain amount of concentration, focus, devotion to the reading. If you read a novel in more than two weeks you don't read the novel really. So I think that kind of concentration and focus and attentiveness is hard to come by – it's hard to find huge numbers of people, large numbers of people, significant numbers of people, who have those qualities,"

Let's band together and prove Mr. Roth wrong!
