New Yorker Radio Hour Bio of Philip Roth

While chauffeuring my wife around Sunday morning to her various visits to sick people, I listened to David Remnick's "New Yorker Radio Hour," which this time consisted of a long biographical piece on one of my favorite authors, Philip Roth.

If you care to spend an hour, you can find a link to it here. Just click on the December 28 program, which is right now at the top of the list.

Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Skryabin (“Molotov”)
