Writer Philip Roth, Dead at 85

Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home. Andrew is the host of Heard Tell podcast.

    Philip Roth was part of an interesting generation of American Jews. He was too young to fight in WWII but about ten or twelve years too old to be a hippie. His generation knew overt anti-Semitism but were spared the Holocaust. This is why I think his writing is so great and necessary.

    But those are old dusty issues that are boring to the current moment so he gets damnedReport
