Philip Roth confirms no further novels

Nov 11 2012

In an interview with a French magazine, Philip Roth, aged 78, said that he does not intend to write any more novels, and has not been working on anything new since his last novel, Nemesis, was published three years ago:

Talking about the period after Nemesis was published, Roth says that he reread all his work in reverse chronological order, and "decided that I was done with fiction. I do not want to read, to write more...I have dedicated my life to the novel: I studied, I taught, I wrote and I read. With the exclusion of almost everything else. Enough is enough! I no longer feel this fanaticism to write that I have experienced in my life."
