Paul Auster: Why Phillip Roth is Wrong About the Novel.
[I’m not sure Auster is correct about what Roth is saying about “the novel.” I don’t think Roth is saying the novel in general is dying, I think he means that a certain type of novel is dying. Roth is being a literary snob, as he has been in the past. And because of this, he thinks the novel, the literary novel and not the popular novel, is a thing of the past. If that’s the case, then I disagree with Roth and agree with Auster that the novel is merely taking a different form.]
