A Piece of Intriguing News


This interview with Philip Roth is fine enough, but this piece of information should cheer up everyone:

But mostly now Roth leads the quiet life of an Upper West Side retiree. (His house in Connecticut, where he used to seclude himself for extended bouts of writing, he now uses only in the summer.) He sees friends, goes to concerts, checks his email, watches old movies on FilmStruck. Not long ago he had a visit from David Simon, the creator of “The Wire,” who is making a six-part mini-series of “The Plot Against America,” and afterward he said he was sure his novel was in good hands. Roth’s health is good, though he has had several surgeries for a recurring back problem, and he seems cheerful and contented. He’s thoughtful but still, when he wants to be, very funny.

David Simon is doing a mini-series of The Plot Against America? During the Trump years? Oh. My. God. Simon confirms it too. Who plays President Lindbergh? And is he provided orange hair and a 6’3, 239 lb body?
