Literary Suggestion

Just bought Philip Roth's last book 'Everyman', and quite excited about it.
Roth is the best writer alive, and captures as nobody else can the tragedy of life and death in our contemporary world (America in his case).

Sophocles and Shakespear are two other examples of that ability to grasp sublime tragic moments.

For a very recent review, please have a look at the New York review of Books, here.
