Philip Roth


Saturday, November 06, 2004

In Philip Roth’s latest novel The Plot Against America, Roth imagines what would have happened if the aviation hero Charles Lindberg had defeated Franklin Roosevelt in the 1940 election. In the book, an 8-year old boy named Philip Roth watches as the U.S. sits out of World War II and anti-Semitism flourishes in America. Philip Roth talks with Kurt Andersen about what inspired him to rewrite reality. Produced by Ave Carrillo.
