Philip Roth - "Author of the Month" April 2021

Philip Milton Roth (b 1933 Newark, NJ, d 2018 New York) was an American novelist and short-story writer whose fiction is  known for its autobiographical character, for blurring the distinction between reality and fiction, and for its provocative explorations of American identity.

In 1997 Philip Roth won the Pulitzer Prize for American Pastoral. In 1998 he received the National Medal of Arts at the White House and in 2002 the highest award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Gold Medal in Fiction. He twice won the National Book Award (1960 for Goodbye, Columbus; 1995 for Sabbath's Theate) and the National Book Critics Circle Award (1986 for The Counterlife; 1991 for Patrimony). He won the PEN/Faulkner Award three times (1994 for Operation Shylock; 2001 for The Human Stain; 2007 for Everyman). In 2005 The Plot Against America received the Society of American Historians’ Prize for “the outstanding historical novel on an American theme for 2003–2004.” Roth received PEN’s two most prestigious awards: in 2006 the PEN/Nabokov Award and in 2007 the PEN/Bellow Award for achievement in American fiction. In 2011 he received the National Humanities Medal at the White House, and was named a recipient of the Man Booker International Prize
