Paul Auster: Why Philip Roth Is Wrong About the Novel

This video was posted back in 2009, but it seems particularly relevant after Roth's controversial Booker win and later statement that he's "stopped reading fiction".

Paul Auster knows what's up, and this video makes me happy.


  1. Love this so much and I completely agree.

    p.s. Headed to NYC in a couple hours and I'm taking The Brooklyn Follies with me because of your great review. I'm glad I saw this video before I started it.

  2. Melissa, HAVE FUN! I'm so excited you are taking Brooklyn Follies with you. I think you'll really like it. Enjoy :)
