Hi-Five Friday, Philip Roth Edition

Ok, so this photo isn’t technically of a high-five, but hey! I met the man himself this week, so give me a break alright?

This incredible experience will be the subject of my next full post, but in the meantime, take a look at these articles and let me know what you think! Have a great weekend.

1). The New Yorker’s Re-Cap of Roth’s Birtday Bash.

I still can’t believe I was there. It feels like a dream.

2). Goodbye Newark, The Place Roth Never Left.

The New York Times’ account of the bash.

3). “Give Him Your Lips.”

From the fabulous website How to Be a Retronaught, an incredible visual collection of our society’s craziness. Must be seen to be believed. Oddly appropriate for the Roth edition, I think…

4). Article about Urban Hipsters (Con).

5). Article about Urban Hipsters (Pro).

Next up: My first-hand account of a historical moment: Roth’s 80th birthday!

Happy reading.
