Reflections on the life and literature of Philip Roth, by Laura Demanski, at The University of Chicago Magazine.
"The University of Chicago “was the right place for me to go to,' Roth told an interviewer in 2011. 'I enjoyed it. I developed a real affection for the place, the neighborhood Hyde Park, and the University.' What he learned there, he said in 1983, was 'how to talk back to all those great books.'"
