Philip Roth's work to go in anthology
NEW YORK -- Philip Roth will collaborate with the Library of America on an eight-volume anthology of his works, including such classic novels as "Portnoy's Complaint" and "The Counterlife." It marks just the third time the Library of America has published the books of a living writer, and the first time the writer has participated in the project.
Founded in 1979, the Library of America is a nonprofit publisher created to "preserve our nation's literary heritage." Featured authors include Walt Whitman and Mark Twain.
The first two Roth volumes will come out in 2005, and the series will conclude eight years later, to coincide with the author's 80th birthday. Roth has won many awards, including the Pulitzer Prize for "American Pastoral."
