Philip Roth says he is done writing.

By December 3, 2012

Follow me on:

In an interview with French magazine Les Inrocks, Philip Roth quietly announced his retirement from writing. The news, confirmed by Salon with Roth's publisher, will be a shock to many who have enjoyed Roth's Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning writing.

Roth's first book, Goodbye Columbus, won the National Book Award in 1960 when the author was just 26-years-old. Now at the age of 79, Roth's written 26 novels, most of which explored the Jewish-American experience.
