The Indiscreet Novelist

Philip Roth’s birthday was noted on Garrison Keillor’s almanac, and included a choice bit of wisdom that should urge us all to boldness. Note that Roth is the novelist who reached his first fame with Portnoy’s Complaint (1969), about a man obsessed with sex.

Roth is quoted as saying: “I cannot and do not live in the world of discretion, not as a writer, anyway. I would prefer to, I assure you — it would make life easier. But discretion is, unfortunately, not for novelists.”
