Philip Roth’s Exit Ghost: Free Chapters, Podcasts & More

Philip Roth fans did­n’t have to wait very long for anoth­er nov­el. A short year and a half after pub­lish­ing Every­man, Roth has just put out Exit Ghost. It’s anoth­er book that takes a hard look at aging, and it also marks the ninth and pos­si­bly last time that the char­ac­ter Nathan Zuck­er­man will inhab­it Roth’s lit­er­ary cre­ations. (For more on the Zuk­er­man series, see Salon’s old­er piece here.) We’ll even­tu­al­ly have more to say about Exit Ghost. But, for now, we want­ed to point you to some good relat­ed resources. For starters, if you can’t wait to get the book, you can read the first chap­ter online for free here. And you can also catch some very recent inter­views with Roth. First, Ama­zon Wired (iTunesFeedTran­script) fea­tures him talk­ing about Exit Ghost and offer­ing a very short read­ing from it. Then there is this inter­view by Ter­ry Gross on NPR’s Fresh Air. (iTunesFeedStream). Final­ly, here are the first reviews that have rolled out: New York Mag­a­zine, The New York Sun, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Wash­ing­ton Post, and Times Online (UK).

P.S. Here are a cou­ple of oth­er Philip Roth good­ies.
